Directions

Snowman_Stocking_Step1.jpg

Step 1: Download the pattern PDF (above), then print and cut out the pieces. Assemble the stocking pattern pieces with scotch tape.

Snowman_Stocking_Step2.jpg

Step 2: Using straight pins to attach the pattern pieces to the felt, cut out the following:

2 gray felt stocking pieces

2 red flannel stocking pieces

2 dark green trees

1 light green tree

3 brown tree stumps

1 piece of each of the three snowman circles in white

1 orange carrot nose

Step 3: Using the paper hole punch, cut out 11 red dots. You may need to use fabric or embroidery scissors to complete the cuts if your punch isn’t very sharp.

Step 4: Select one of the gray felt stocking pieces for the front, making sure the toe is pointed toward the right when it’s facing you. Using straight pins, secure the first (dark green) tree and tree stump in place. Make sure the top of the tree stump is tucked under the tree.

Snowman_Stocking_Step5.jpg

Step 5: With 2 strands of dark green embroidery floss (each length of embroidery floss is made up of 6 individual strands), straight stitch around the edge of the tree with small, even stitches. Do the same straight stitch around the edges of the tree stump.

Snowman_Stocking_Step6.jpg

Step 6: Pin the second (light green) tree and stump in place and straight stitch around the edges of both using the same method that you did for the first tree.

Snowman_Stocking_Step7a.jpg

Snowman_Stocking_Step7b.jpg

Step 7: Using a split stitch with 3 strands of gray embroidery floss, zigzag a line of stitches across the tree from top to bottom. If you have trouble sewing in a straight line, you can lightly mark the path with tailor’s chalk before starting. This line will be the cord for the Christmas lights on the tree.

Snowman_Stocking_Step8.jpg

Step 8: Pin the third (dark green) tree and stump in place and straight stitch around both like you did in Steps 5 and 6.

Snowman_Stocking_Step9a.jpg

Snowman_Stocking_Step9b.jpg

Step 9: Place the red dots on the lines that you stitched in Step 7 and loosely baste them in place using 1 strand of white embroidery floss. These stitches are only intended to hold the dots in place while you are sewing around them. The white floss will be removed once the dots are secured, so don’t knot the ends. I’ve included both a front and back view to give you a better idea of the basting method that I used.

Snowman_Stocking_Step10.jpg

Step 10: Straight stitch around the edge of each dot. Once the dots are secured, pull on the white embroidery floss to remove the basting stitch.

Snowman_Stocking_Step11.jpg

Step 11: Pin the white circles for the snowman in place and straight stitch around one piece at a time, layering each piece on top of the one before it.

Snowman_Stocking_Step12.jpg

Step 12: Using 1 strand of white embroidery floss, place the orange nose on the snowman and baste it in place. Use the face printed on the snowman pattern to make sure the nose is in the right spot. Using 2 strands of orange embroidery floss, straight stitch around the edge of the nose.

Snowman_Stocking_Step13.jpg

Step 13: Open the eye and mouth holes on the face pattern with a straight pin, then use a fine point marker to mark the face onto the felt though the holes that you just made.

Snowman_Stocking_Step14.jpg

Step 14: Using 3 strands of black embroidery floss, make French knots for the eyes and mouth. To make the eyes bigger, you can wrap the floss around the needle a few extra times.

Snowman_Stocking_Step15.jpg

Step 15: Add arms to the snowman by split stitching with 6 strands of brown embroidery floss. Again, feel free to sketch the arms with tailor’s chalk before you sew.

Snowman_Stocking_Step16.jpg

Step 16: Decorate the trees and dress the snowman.

First tree: Add tinsel to the tree by backstitching in a zigzag pattern with 3 strands of silver metallic embroidery floss.

Second tree: Sew the decorative colored buttons onto the second tree with 2 strands of green embroidery floss to make ornaments.

Third tree: Evenly distribute the white seed beads across the tree and sew them in place with two strands of white embroidery floss.

Snowman: Stitch three black buttons onto the snowman with two strands of black embroidery floss.

Snowman_Stocking_Step17.jpg

Step 17: With right sides facing, pin a red flannel stocking piece to both gray stocking pieces. On the front piece, the red flannel should cover the side of the gray felt that contains the trees and snowman.

Snowman_Stocking_Step18.jpg

Step 18: Using a 1/4″ seam allowance (hand stitching is okay too), sew across the top of each flannel and felt pair.

Snowman_Stocking_Step19.jpg

Step 19: On both side pieces of the stocking, fold the flannel over the top of the felt stocking piece so that wrong sides are facing and the seam you just sewed is now between the two pieces. Once the felt and flannel are lined up on both, put the two sides of the stocking together with flannel sides facing and pin in place or hold with fabric clips.

Snowman_Stocking_Step20.jpg

Step 20: Using evenly spaced stitches, whipstitch the two stocking sides together around the edge using 2 strands of red embroidery floss.

Snowman_Stocking_Step21.jpg

Step 21: Finish the stocking by hand sewing the decorative ribbon loop into the left side seam and reinforcing the stitches at the top edges of the stocking with a few extra whipstitches.
