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.

Turn right side out

Sew opening in lining closed using a blind stitch.

Push the lining down inside the quilted stocking.  Press upper edge.  Topstitch.

Topstitch around top of stocking

Admire the finished stocking.

    Why do you need to baste a fabric to the side where you sew the strips?

      Hello Lynette,

      I cut out and baste the fabric stocking shape to the batting to use as a guide to make sure that when I’m adding strips I’m covering the area I need to have covered when I cut out the final stocking shape. The extra fabric also adds another layer of stability to the stockings.

    Thanks so much for this tutorial. I had cut out my basic shapes of the stocking but it’s been lying on my work table for 2 weeks as I was unsure of how to proceed. You’ve cleared up my befuddled mind completely. Thank you!
