Every year my friends and I throw a Christmas dinner party for 20+ friends, which includes a goody bag filled with items from the dollar store, and a handmade item from yours truly. Last year I decided to make mini Christmas stockings for the ladies because the fabric, “Pin Up, All I Want for Christmas” by Alexander Henry, is just that awesome.
I found this mini stocking template on martha stewart, grabbed my scraps of fabric and started pinning and cutting away. Once the fabric was ready, I placed the bottom piece wrong side down on my machine, placed a folded over ribbon in the upper right hand corner with the edges facing out, and pinned the top piece right side together.
I then sewed a 1/4 inch seam all the way around, but left a 3 inch opening on the other side.
I then turned the stocking right side out, ironed the edges and top stitched with a 1/4 inch seam.
Needless to say, it was a hit with the ladies, including Miss Piggy. Hubba, Hubba.
