Lets gather our materials:

Super Easy Strippy Stocking Pattern

21 - 2.5” x 12” assorted fabric strips

1 - Fat eighth for the “cuff”

1 - Fat eighth for the “heel and toe”

1 yard for the lining and the backing

10” of 1/2” twill tape, or preferred material for the hanging loop


Time to get started!

Following the pattern, trim your paper pattern, and prepare your back and lining fabric pieces.

Starting at piece #1:

On back side of pattern, line up edges of fabric strips (right sides together) with sewing line on front side of pattern.

A light box or a bright window is super helpful to line up each new strip.

Stitch on pattern line, fold pattern paper back, then trim seam allowance to ¼ inch, and press open.
