there is nothing i love greater than working with scraps of materials and historic clothes to create some thing new – above all with regards to Christmas and what can suppose like overwhelming consumerism. This week i have been enjoying gradual stitching, motivated by using the japanese method sashiko to transform my fabric scraps and an ancient pair of jeans into stockings.
To make your possess stocking start by way of cutting out two reflect pics of a stocking – there’s a free downloadable template on my weblog put up.
next use material scraps to type a cuff on the stocking.
utilising embroidery floss and a running sew sew vertical traces across the cuff to comfortable the fabric down.
subsequent reduce out a heel and a toe form, at ease these too with a jogging stitch. I suggest following the curves of the contrasting fabric.
once your slow hand stitching is whole finish the uncooked edges of the stocking both with an overlocker or a zig zag stitch.
subsequent lets create a tassle and a hanging loop. For the tassle reduce lots of threads approx 5" lengthy. Fold in half of then wrap a thread round and around near the fold and cozy with a knot.
For the loop cut a thread approx three" long and tie a knot.
location the striking loop and tassle about 5/8" from the top of the stocking, in closer to the core of the stocking, the knots have got to be caught in the seam allowance. Location the second piece of stocking on top so rights aspects face each other and desktop stitch the perimeters and bottom of the stocking.
turn over the top of the stocking so the overlocked edge is facing the mistaken facet of the stocking. Hand sew to cozy in place.
ultimately turn the stocking correct aspect out and admire your handiwork. In case you enjoy finding out from video verify out this tutorial on you tube.
