DIY Christmas Stocking Bunting

Hello! Today we're going to be preparing for a magical handmade Christmas by making Christmas stocking bunting. It's perfect for beginners, and you can even hand sew them if you don't have a sewing machine.

We've made ours double sided, using a Christmas Stocking design by KBDraws and a poinsettia design by BoundingSquirrel. You can order your own on a choice of 6 fabrics!

Supplies:

The stockings on KBDraws' design are the perfect size for Christmas bunting! Cut around each one leaving a 1cm (2/5") border as a seam allowance. As a guide, one fat quarter will give you approx. 10  stockings.

Place your stockings face down on your backing fabric. We chose BoundingSquirrel's poinsettia print, and it looks great! Pin each stocking down and cut around them.

Sew around the edge of each stocking with a 1cm (2/5") seam allowance. Make sure you leave the top of the stocking open though:

Clip notches around the 'foot' of each stocking, and turn them the right way round. Press each stocking with a warm iron.

Cut a 1.5m (60") piece of bias binding, and fold it in half.

Sandwich the top of each stocking between the bias binding, and pin in place. Leave approx. 5cm (2'') between each stocking.

Using a matching thread, sew close to the open edge of the bias binding, securing the stockings in place. If you want to hang the bunting from nails or branches, fold over each loose end of the bias binding and stitch in place to make a loop.
