Continued from Part One of the Quilt-As-You-Go Stocking Tutorial
To make the hanging loop:
Baste the interfacing onto the wrong side of the hanging loop.
Fold loop, right sides together and stitch along long edge using a ¼ inch seam allowance.
To turn right side out, place safety pin in folded edge of one end of the loop.
Turn pin so that it’s inside the loop.
Push the pin through to the other end, pulling the loop right side out as you go.
Remove safety pin. Press.
Turn quilted stocking right side out. Pin the loop to the top back of the quilted stocking. Baste in place.
Slip the quilted stocking inside the lining; right sides together, making sure that the seams match up. Sew all the way around the top of the stocking using ½ inch seam allowance.
If you have a free arm sewing machine, sew on the outside. But if you don’t, then it’s easiest to sew around the inside for this seam.
Turn stocking right side out through the opening in the lining.
Sew opening in lining closed using a blind stitch.
Push the lining down inside the quilted stocking. Press upper edge. Topstitch.
Admire the finished stocking.
