Peppermint Reindeer Stocking Tutorial
Checkout this adorable Peppermint Reindeer Stocking Panel by Studio E. The step-by-step instructions and recommended materials make this fun project a breeze. When you are finished sewing the stockings together, add some embellishments like glitter, beads, or ribbons to make these stockings a keepsake that you will always treasure.
- Read all instructions completely before starting the project.
- Unless otherwise noted, all seam allowances are sewn at 1/4 inch.
- Measure fabric twice, cut once.
- The use of an iron is suggested for this project.
Along with typical sewing items like scissors, pins, iron/ironing board, and a rotary cutter/cutting mat, you will need the following:
- Peppermint Reindeer Stocking Fabric Panel
- Dream Cotton Muslin (1 Yard)
- Madeira Aerofil Thread
- Iron Vanishing Pen (Red)
- Dritz Long Pearlized Pins
- Clover 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge
Press all the fabric before you begin. You can starch the fabric if you like.
Layer the muslin liner and panel together with your panel on top, then pin the stocking to the muslin liner.
Cut 1/4 inch around the stockings. Cutting both the muslin liner and stocking layers.
Take the stocking front and back and face them right sides together.
Using a straight stitch foot, sew around the stocking leaving the top open. Repeat with the muslin lining.
Trim the curves, this will prevent the stocking from being bulky when you turn it out.
Turn both the muslin liner and stocking right side up. Press the seams of both the stockings and muslin liners out with your hand. Slip the liner into the stocking.
Fold the muslin liner and the stocking openings inwards towards one another 1/4 inch, press them.
Use Christmas Ribbon (or whatever you prefer) about 5 inches long, tuck the tales in a good 1/2 inch on the heal side. Using the free arm on your machine stitch (we used a zigzag stitch) the muslin liner and stocking together making sure that the ribbon tales are sewn down in between the liner and stocking.
Repeat all steps above for the second stocking.
