Make a… Scandi stock­ing

Cross Stitcher - - Filled With Love -

Step 1

LAY your com­pleted stitch­ing face-down on top of your back­ing fab­ric. Stitch around the stock­ing shape, leav­ing 1cm (⅜in) be­tween the outer edge of the cross stitch and the seam. Trim away some of the seam al­lowance, and then clip the curve around the stock­ing toe. Turn to the right side.

Step 2

TURN over the top edge of the stock­ing twice, then ma­chine stitch the seam to hold it in place. Place the two pieces of felt to­gether, and then stitch down the long seams on ei­ther side of the felt with a 6mm (¼in) seam al­lowance.

Step 3

WORK the right-side of the stock­ing now – slip the felt sleeve over the neat­ened top edge with the seams fac­ing out. Sew the felt sleeve se­curely to the top of the stock­ing. Fold the felt sleeve down to form the stock­ing top and then fin­ish with bob­ble trim and a felt strip sewn to the top for hang­ing.
