Making Christmas Stockings - Free Pattern & Tutorial

 Featured @ Marvelous Mommy
Been putting my embroidering machine to some good use making stockings for several people.  Here is my tutorial and free stocking pattern for you to download.

I do keep a journal to help me remember how I will do or did things.
Embroidery placement twisted my brain a bit.

I can't tell you how many times I forgot to add the hanger.

Through the opening, turn the stocking right side out.

Stuff the lining inside the stocking.

To join the edging.... 
You need to leave an inch overlapping the seam.
Start stitching about 2 inches after the seam.
Stop about 2 inches before you get back to the seam.
This gives you room to pin the 2 ends together and seam them together.

 Then flatten out the edging, start stitching (back stitch) where you left off to where you began (back stitch).

Turn right side out, and turn down the cuff.
