These quantities are guides only and the actual amount of fabric required greatly depends on your fabric choices.
This pattern is designed for fabrics with no stretch.
Medium weight fabrics work best for the main body of the stocking, i.e. cotton canvas, calico. Alternatively, you could interface a lighter weight fabric like quilting cotton.
For the contrasts and appliqués, a light-medium weight is best, i.e. quilting cotton or linen blends.
Faux fur works great for the cuff – although you could also experiment with other fabric choices here.
2m Bias Cut Piping for each theme, either ready made, or homemade.
20cm Sew in Velcro 20mm wide.
Co-ordinating polyester thread.
Contrasting (or even metallic) thread for embellishments and appliqués (optional).
10 sets Snap fasteners – plastic snaps, or sew on poppers. (Note: we will not use one half of 5 of them.)
Fusible Web for appliqué.
Lobster clasp and other notions to make a charm i.e. pom poms, bells (optional).
30cm ribbon for hanging loop.
