For Martha's grandchildren, Jude and Truman, two different cotton plaids in the same color scheme were apropos. You can sew them into generously sized stockings and add a cuff of soft, cozy shearling. Use our pattern to make your own.

Start by learning how to sew, especially the whip stitch and other handy sewing techniques.


What you need


How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Print and cut out the stocking pattern and the cuff template.

Step 2

Fold the fabric (right-sides facing), and place the pattern on top; cut out both layers at once. Sew all around. Turn the stocking right-side out.

Step 3

Cut ribbon and hand-stitch a loop onto the top edge. (The raw edge will be hidden behind the shearling.)

Step 4

Fold the shearling (right sides facing). Place the cuff template on top, left (straight) side on the fold of the shearling. Cut out the shearling. Hand-stitch the shearling cuff to the top edge of the stocking. Stitch the edges closed using a whip stitch.
