Christmas Stocking Bunting - A Tutorial



 I love the idea of stockings hung by the fire - especially at Christmas.


Here's a quick tutorial for Christmas stocking bunting to hang by your fire.




You'll need:

Stiff Felt
Fabric scraps (or from fat quarters)
Double fold bias tape (1 package)
Thread
Sharpie or fabric marker
Stocking Pattern (found here)


Start by cutting out your pattern and using a Sharpie or a fabric marker, trace the pattern onto the stiff felt.



Cut out the stockings from the felt and the fabric.  You'll need one stocking for every 5" of bunting.


Pin the fabric to the stiff felt and sew around the edge, sewing about 1/8" away from the edge.



Continue until all stockings are sewn.



Pin stockings into the inside of the bias tape.


Space the stockings 5" apart.



Sew along the edge of the bias tape, securing the stockings as you go.



Enjoy!
