His and Her Scrappy Christmas Stockings



– One Figgy Pudding Jelly Roll by Basic Grey

– Two, 1/2 yard pieces of coordinating fabric.
– One 20′ x 20″ piece of light weight batting.
(I used warm and natural)

This is the pattern I used. I took it to a copy shop and blew it up so that the stocking measures approx. 7″ x 15 1/2″. I also added an extra 1 1/2″ inches to the top because I wanted it a little
longer.

Step 1 – Pick out 10 of your favorite strips of fabric from your Jelly Roll. Cut them in half length wise so you have ten 2 1/2 x 18″ pieces.


Step 2 – Cut your strips so that one end measures approx 1″ in width and the other the full 2 1/2″. This will give you the scrappy look that were going for.

Step 3 – Sew all strips together (1/4″ seam allowance), starting with the 1″ end of the strip being at the left end (start), and then next time the 2 1/2″ strip being at the left end. Do this with all ten strips. Then using your favorite stitch, sew the fabric onto the batting by sewing in the ditch of each seam. Note: Make sure you start at the bottom left edge so the the extra batting will be at the top of the stocking.

Step 4 – Cut the quilted fabric in half like in the picture below. One will be for the red stocking and one for the green.

Step 5 – Cut the coordinating pieces of fabric. I tried to show how to lay out your pieces to cut them, but I’m definitely not a photo shop expert so hopefully if will make some sense. The diagram below shows how the stockings should be laid out on a 18″ x 45 ” piece of fabric with the left edge folded over enough to cut two. The first stocking needs to be cut on the folded fabric, these two will be used for the lining so you can set them aside for later. Go ahead and cut out the rest of the pieces as explained. You will also need to do this out of the 2nd piece of coordinating fabric for the 2nd stocking. I sure hope this makes sense.

Step 6 – Sew the 9 x 3 1/4″ piece of coordinating fabric onto the top of stocking. Do this by placing the coordinating piece right side down and facing right side of stocking with the edge lined up with the edge of your last strip of fabric. Sew along top using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Open and press.

Step 7 – Lay your pattern on top of your stocking fabric so that the stocking pattern is at the top of the red fabric. Mine doesn’t look that way, I put a large piece of red because I wasn’t sure how long to make it, but 3″ of the red fabric on top seems to be about right.

Step 8 – Layer fabric as show below and then cut out stocking.

Step 9 – Explained in picture.


Step 10 – Sew around stocking using a 1/4″ seam allowance, then trim. Turn stocking right side out so the batting is in the middle. Also sew around the two stockings pieces that were cut on the folded fabric, place right sides together and sew – leave about a 2″ opening on the straight side of stocking so you can turn it later.

Step 11 – Making the loop/hook – Take your 2 1/2 x 6″ piece of fabric and iron in half width wise. Unfold and fold outer edges into the middle crease, then fold entire piece in half width wise and sew along outer two edges using about 1/8″ seam allowance.

Step 12 – Make the band around your stocking – Take your 7 x 13″ piece of fabric and fold in half lengthwise with right sides together. Sew up the edge and then turn. Iron piece of fabric in half width wise. Place raw edges at the top of stocking (pictured below) and pin with the seam in back or on the side. Next fold loop fabric in half, center it over the side seam on the left and then pin. Next place the quilted stocking inside of the red lining stocking. Pin at the top and sew around top.

Step 13 – Pull the quilted stocking out through the opening of the lining stocking. Sorry, now it’s green.
Step 14 – Sew up the space in the side and then tuck lining down into the stocking, and fold fabric band down. Repeat steps 5 – 14 for your coordinating stocking.

Two Super Cute His and Her Scrappy Christmas Stockings. The finished size of this stocking is approximately 6″ x 15″. This is a smaller stocking (that’s just what I grew up with) so, if you like big ones you will need to adjust the pattern accordingly. You may need more like 3/4 of a yard of coordinating fabric and a few extra strips of the Jelly Roll. If you used your whole jelly roll, you can actually get 16 stockings because you can get 4 our of every ten strips. Just remember that you need a half yard of coordinating fabric for each stocking. If you don’t want to sew any, these two will be up for sale in my etsy shop.

    Very cute. I had one last year but it wasn't as finished looking as yours – I should have put batting in it to give it more shape. Maybe I'll do that if I make more this year.
