"P" is for Plaid Stockings

Sew: personalized plaid stockings


Just in time for Christmas!  
A friend asked for a set of Christmas stockings now that they have a new little guy James.








Here's how to make the plaid stockings:

1. Cut stocking shape from plaid fabric, two pieces for each stocking:


2. Sew 1/2" seam around edges except at top opening then clip curves:


3. Prepare hook piece.  Cut 2" x 7" strip:


4. Fold in raw edges and top stitch down both long sides:


5. Cut cuff piece to match width of stocking opening.
Cut letters from fabric backed with double sided fusible (heat-n-bond).


6. Iron letters in place and zig zag stitch around edges:


7.  Turn plaid stocking right side out and place cuff right side up against the wrong side of stocking, pin in place around top edge:
(**Don't forget to add hanger in place before sewing.)


8. The top edge should look like this once sewn:


9. Fold cuff down and top stitch top edge:
