Crazy Quilt Stocking

I used those odd-sized scraps of lace and fabric from my other projects to make crazy quilt stocking ornaments.

The top of this one is embellished with pleated and knotted seam binding. I used Early Espresso and Whisper White Baker's twine (123124) to make the tassel.

Try making my No-Sew ribbon flower to embellish your projects.

Use Baker's twine to crochet that sweet heart from Leigha Rock's wonderful blog.

-trace the outline of the stocking on thin cotton backing fabric
-pin a piece of fabric somewhere in the middle
-cover an edge with another piece of fabric
-sew a 1/4 in. seam
-finger press the fabric over the seam and trim threads
-trim away fabric to make a straight edge for the next piece of fabric
-cover an edge and sew a 1/4 in. seam
-finger press fabric over the seam
-continue adding fabrics until the outline is covered
-trace around the stocking pattern on the wrong side
-layer the crazy quilt piece over lining fabric
-leaving the top open, stitch around the traced line back-stitching at the beginning and end

-cut off the top on the traced line
-trim around the stitching with pinking shears
-turn right side out
-turn over 1/4 in. on top edge and hem
-embellish as desired
