I had always wanted to design some cathedral window Christmas stocking. Everything I like, I want to try on cathedral window!!
Let’s make them with this step by step tutorial!
Cathedral window Christmas stocking tutorial
In this case, I worked with small square classic units so that the cathedral window Christmas stocking was delicate and elegant.
I made 32 classic units in muslin. I cut the 32 inserts in red solid cotton and I closed each unit. Then, I arranged them as follows.
I cut the windows and I placed them over the cathedral window base. I secure the fabric with pins and I applied the windows.
I cut the stocking body pieces and I placed over the big cathedral window piece, facing the right sides and I sewed, leaving 1/4″ seam allowance. I cut the excess of the cathedral window piece (believe me, it hurts!), and I turned it right. I pressed well.
I placed the second piece, facing the right sides and I sewed, leaving 1/4″ seam allowance.
I joined the piece left with the small cathedral window piece, right sides facing, and I sewed. I pressed well, again.
I placed these two pieces right sides facing and I pined them together as shown in the picture. I sewed and turned it right.
I joined this part with the body and I lined them up, matching the two upper borders. I cut a strip of muslin. Then, I folded the entire strip in half lengthwise and I pressed.
I started pinning in the middle of one side of the front of the stocking, joining the two pieces together. (If you like, add a little strip to hang the stocking when it is done) I pinned it down. When I got to the beginning, I joined the two ends and sewed them.
I pinned to the border and I sewed. I folded the edge of the binding over to the inside and pinned it down. With an invisible stitch, I sewed all around. Then, I pressed carefully.
Now, I think you agree with me: Santa will love these stocking to fill with little gifts and big love!!
