Janet Clare - Paper Sewing Pattern - Christmas Stocking
"I adore Christmas and ever since I was a little girl loved the theatre of Christmas Eve, hanging the stockings and preparing for Rudolph, and the unbearable excitement of waking Christmas Day in the hope of lots of presents. To this day, we still gather excitedly as a family, adults and children alike, to rummage through our stockings early on Christmas morning!
Two of the stockings you see in this pattern were created for my boys many years ago – they have lasted many frenetic Christmas mornings and I love the fact that they were created especially for them and that they are still enjoyed as much now as when they were tiny.
So now you can create personalised Christmas Stockings with my lovely pattern. I’ve included three designs and a full alphabet and all the templates are full size so it is easy to get started right away. Using quick machine piecing and my favourite fusible appliqué techniques you will have stockings ready for the whole family in time for Christmas!" - Janet Clare
