Little Birdie Secrets offers tips for Stylish Stockings. They are handmade Christmas stockings, made to look like a cowboy boot and Mary Jane shoe! They're a fun, modern take on a seasonal tradition.
We just took an existing stocking pattern and sketched in a Mary Jane applique.
We used freezer paper to sketch out the boot. You can tell here because you can see all the lines. We kept "trying" until we found a look we liked. You can use an existing pattern to help you with size. Just modify it for the boxy toe and the short boot heel in the back. We also curved the top of our stocking.
You will want to fold your fabric either right side together or wrong side together--it doesn't matter as long as you have two opposite pieces for the stocking. You will then want to cut two pieces for the lining and two pieces of batting. Now you should have a total of 6 pieces for your stocking--not including all the applique pieces.
Once all our applique pieces are on, quilt the stocking piece to the batting. You can get creative here and quilt as much or as little as you want. You just want to make sure your batting is set in place and will not move around much at all.
