Katie from Leave you in Stitches is back again, and this time, she's brought us a sweet tutorial on how to make a patchwork or stripwork version of our free stocking pattern. Love this scrap buster!
And, because I have far less boy fabric pickings, I went with a stripwork design for the boys' stockings. I'm going to show you how to make the patchwork stocking, and then later give measurements to make the stripwork version. We will be making a patchwork piece of fabric on which to cut out the front piece of the stocking. After that, you will follow Robin's pattern to finish your stocking.
Cut out 60 squares that measure 2.75". EEK! I know, that's a lot of squares. You are going to need 10 rows of 6 squares each. You could whip 'em out with a rotary cutter, I am sure. I just never got the hang of it ;)
- 10 strips measuring: 2.5" x 13".
- Follow along at step 4 to construct your stripwork piece.
