Scrappy Stockings // New Pattern!

Most years I put off all Christmas sewing until the last minute but this year I have been in the mood much earlier! This week I finished a new pdf pattern called Scrappy Stockings

Scrappy Stockings

The pattern includes material requirements and instructions for creating one stocking approximately 10” x 17” using a stitch and flip, quilt-as-you-go technique. It also includes instructions for alternative front panel layouts (diagonal, wonky or square/rectangles). You can purchase the pdf pattern in my shop and you will be emailed immediately.

A few days ago I taught a Scrappy Stockings class locally. I think everyone had a pretty fun time, I sure did. We had fabric scattered everywhere like a bomb went off, it was awesome.
