Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Printing and Assembling Your Pattern
Visit our DuckaDilly Downloads page to print the Jingle Stocking pattern. The pattern should be printed at 100% scale. Instructions for how to access and print our downloads are available on our blog.
Cut and assemble the pattern pieces.
Step 2: Cutting Your Stocking Fabrics
Be mindful of which direction you want your stocking to end up facing - cut your front and back fabrics accordingly.
Using the stocking template as your pattern, cut out the following pieces:
1 Back (mirrored from the front)
2 Linings (one facing each direction).
2 Batting pieces
(1) 2.5” x 10” rectangle in both fabric and interfacing, for hanging loop. For interfacing, we like Pellon SF 101.
Step 3: Quilting Your Stocking
Pin the front and back pieces of your stocking (right side up) to your batting and quilt as desired.
Step 4: Making Your Hanging Loop
Iron the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of your hanging loop fabric.
Fold in half lengthwise (right sides together) and sew a 1/4" seam.
Turn right side out, then press.
Top stitch on both edges, then trim to 9 1/2” long.
Step 5: Sewing It All Together
a) With right sides facing, sew your quilted front and back pieces together using a 5/8” seam allowance.
b) With right sides facing, sew your lining pieces together using a 5/8” seam allowance, leaving a 4” opening along the bottom of the foot.
c) Trim the seam allowances on both the quilted stocking and lining.
d) Insert your quilted stocking (right sides facing out) into the lining (wrong sides facing out). The right sides of both socks will now touching.
e) Fold the hanging loop in half, matching up the raw ends.
Insert the loop (raw edges towards the top) between the two sock layers at the back seam near the heel.
Pin the hanging loop centered on the back seam, then pin around the rest of the top, making sure to line up seams.
f) Pin around the rest of the top, making sure to line up seams.
g) Stitch around the top using a 1/2” seam allowance.
h) Locating the 4” opening in the lining, gently pull out the quilted sock.
i) Top-stitch close the opening in the foot. Push the lining back into the stocking.
