Christmas Stockings

I posted on Facebook and Instagram the other day about my plan to make new Christmas stockings this year.  We've had the same stockings for over 20 years.  We're ready for a change.  We decided that we would try to keep the color scheme fairly simple, maybe just red and white.  

While I'm not set on having just Christmas-themed fabrics, that's where I started when I got to my sewing room.  
 Then I came across my scraps and some yardage of the Cotton & Steel Tinsel fabric that I used in my Christmas quilt last year.  
This is some of the best fabric!  I used the Bundle Buster Quilt pattern by Yvonne Fuchs (Quilting Jet Girl) to make this fun quilt.  If you have a FQ bundle just hanging around, use this pattern to turn it into a quilt in a day....seriously.  OK, mine took a little longer than a day because I cut the fat quarters the wrong way and had to order more fabric.  Oops! And that's how I ended up with extra fabric 😀

Sooooo....this is what I have left over from that quilt, and I think it's plenty to make three stockings!  
I'm using the FREE stocking template from Sunny Day Supply.  I'm using the wide template because I want BIG stockings! These should go together pretty fast since I'm not going to do a ton of piecing or quilting on them.  Keepin' it simple....mostly because Christmas is in 16 days😏

    1. It's definitely plenty of fabric! I'll post a pic of them finished sometime before Christmas....or maybe as I'm stitching the last stitch on Christmas day. Ha ha!

    2. If you want Santa to fill your stocking, you might wanna plan on finishing a LITTLE sooner than Christmas Day. ;)
