Christmas Stockings

Project Description

Name of Pattern Simplicity Pattern #4842 What was your inspiration? Christmas Stockings are for my grandson Felix and his yet to be born sibling (hence Sibil's stocking!). Sibil is due shortly after Christmas but I am covering all bases. I will embroider names later. Need something to do on a 15 hour flight to the US.

Q&A with jhof50519

Screaming Mimi asked:
Cute style...I just love the fabric combos you chose.
jhof50519 answered:
Thanks Mimi. Wasn't sure about the fabric for the stripe stocking but very pleased now that they are both together
tomib asked:
And if you used piping at what stage did you apply it?
jhof50519 answered:
Hi tomb. The facing is the lining of the boot and yes I did use piping around the heel toe and cuff. I sewed the piping on after I had sewn on the contrasting materially and applied it to the cuff after I had sewn on the facing. Enjoy.
tomib asked:
the facing is one of the four pieces cut from primary fabric, right? I could be the same as the heel and toe though right?
jhof50519 answered:
Yes, that will work :)
tomib asked:
Finally finished those socks....will post pics
jhof50519 answered:
Looking forward to seeing them :)
