1.) Draw a stocking pattern on paper or use a current stocking to trace the outline onto your fabric that you want the body of the stocking to be. Make sure fabric is folded so it doubles when you cut.
2.) Trace the pattern on fabric that you want to use as a lining, I used red. Once this is done you should have 4 cutouts total per stocking, all the same size. 2 for the body of the stocking, 2 for the lining of the stocking. I was making 2 stockings (one green, one black and white) so don't let the image below fool you.
3.) Choose what fabric you want to use for accents. I used a christmas tree print for the green stocking and a white dot print for the black and white stocking. Cut two pieces of each so they are the same width of the stocking body. You decide how long you want them. If you want to add more than one contrasting fabric, this is where you can get creative. I decided to line each with a silver trim shown above. I cut out 4 pieces of the silver trim, 2 for each stocking.
5.) Be sure to sew all ends of the contrasting fabric down to the stocking body so that it doesn't hang loose. Cut off edges of fabric that hang over the edge of the stocking body so you have a clean look.
7.) Pin the fabric so it holds in place. Begin to sew along the outside of the pattern. Sew all around the stocking except not on the top- you don't want to sew the stocking shut!
