Easy to follow directions for making a rag appliqued stocking.
Then cut out your design, in this case, your stocking.
Using a 5 inch square of the fabric you are using for your applique, a five inch square of batting, and a 5 inch square of a backing fabric, make a sandwich with the batting in the center.
Stack up all three squares with edges even and stitch together with a diagonal X.
Place your stocking pattern on your 5 inch quilted square, right sides up.
Turn square face down and place stocking pattern face down also. Use a pencil or fabric marker to trace around pattern.
Cut stockings out through all three layers. Stitched X will hold layers together.
Place stocking on large square. In this case, the stitching lines on the stocking are lined up with the stitching lines on the large square.
Pin stocking in place and machine stitch close to the edge.
Place a second row of stitching just inside the first row to make sure the design can be washed.
Create a “fur” cuff for your stocking by stitching four layers of one inch wide flannel to the top of your stocking. The flannel stripes should be the same length as the width of the stocking.
Finish your rag appliqued stocking by clipping both sides of the flannel strip. When it is washed, it will fluff up like fur.
