There are a few options for this patchwork stocking pattern, here are the ones I made.
I mixed up fabrics but stayed with a very basic color palatte, I even mixed up the styles a little to use the basic design and then the more intricate patchwork. Adding details in the top stitching is also a good way to fancy it up without spending a lot of money on trim. For the basic stocking layout I used grosgrain ribbon and a blanket stitch (that I have on my sewing machine). You could also use ric rac instead of grosgrain. I like to try and use what I have on hand.
There's just so much you can do with this pattern!
I really can't wait to see everyone's stocking! So remember, sign up for the newsletter here to get your pattern for FREE, post your stocking to the group here using #PatchworkStocking and you'll have a chance to win a fat quarter bundle! Fun, right!
