Easiest Stocking Tutorial EVER!

This may just be the easiest stocking ever to make!

Here's what you need....
A stocking pattern template. (I'm using the Merry pattern from Thimble Blossoms)
Some double sided, pre-quilted fabric.
Extra wide double fold bias tape.
 I had a small cut of pre-quilted fabric in my Christmas bin and thought it would be perfect for this project! This is how I turned it into a couple of stockings...

Cut 2 stocking shapes from your pre-quilted fabric. Be sure to flip your pattern over so that you will have a stocking pointing in each direction to sew together. Pin the 2 stocking pieces together with whichever side you want to be see on the inside. Stitch and turn right side out.
 Carefully pin bias trim along the raw edge of the top of the stocking.

 Cut a piece of the bias tape for your hanger and stitch along open side.
 Place the hanger at the center of the back seam under the top trim and pin in place.
 Stitch the top trim in place, securing the hanger and folding under the end as you finish.

Plenty of time left to join our sew along project this month!
