SO...I decided to make my own! I found THIS tutorial from Imagine Gnats and that is where I found my inspiration. She cut her strips very wide but I had a box full of strips left over from a Christmas tree skirt that I made last year so I used those.
Here is how it turned out!
And yes, I added my name to the stocking since my girls have their names on theirs.
This stocking was machine quilted using my walking foot. I decided to quilt with straight lines going in different directions since the fabric pieces are straight strips sewn at different angles.
I even quilted the back of the stocking as I just didn't feel it was right not to!
I used Warm and Natural batting on the inside of my stocking and it is lined with a ivory and gold fabric (I forgot to take a picture of the inside!).
The tools that were most helpful in this project were my rotary cutter, ruler and mat and the walking foot for my sewing machine. Making a quilted stocking does take some time to figure out the piecing of the strips and then quilting it so I would not say this it is a fast project, one hour.
I really enjoyed making this stocking! It was like making a tiny little quilt, haha! I am planning on offering several in my Etsy shop next year but I was able to finish one today and it is for sale. You can find the listing HERE.
