Approximate Time: 30 minutes or Less
Cut 4 pieces of fabric in the stocking shape. Two sides of the fabric will be cut out facing you right sides out and the other two (used for your inside lining) will be cut with right sides facing inward.
Now lay down the pieces in order as layers like in the photo which will be fabric to the outside facing then batting then 2 sides facing each other inside then batting again then the last fabric facing out. Then use your serger or just machine stitch around the whole outside edge of your stocking (but not the top part which is your opening).
Then use your fabric scraps as your bias tape to put on the top open around the rim and then the outside edge of your stocking to give it a finish look
You then have a padded fabric stocking with the inside lining as pretty as the outside. I did this one in 2 prints which consist of a character print (Thomas the train) and a candy cane Christmas print. You can make your paper pattern any size you like big or small and follow these directions for a beautiful stocking.
Use prints that you know the receiver will like best; ex. horses, frogs, etc. It does not have to be Christmas prints. Or mix and match as I did here with a popular kids theme in mind. Happy Holidays!
