Sew a collection of these charming animal stockings to create cherished holiday keepsakes. Sweet appliqué details give these little critters so much personality, and offer plenty of scope for creative and unique fabric combinations. This sewing pattern includes ALL eight animals, so that everyone can choose a favourite!Animals include: Reindeer/Fawn, Raccoon, Fox, Panda, Bear, Bunny, Kitty and Puppy. The last two are sweet for the furry members of the family too!
Suggested Fabrics; Exterior fabrics: Light-medium weight woven fabric. Lining fabrics: Light-weight woven fabric such as cotton or linen. Detail fabrics: The facial features need to be lightweight on not prone to heavy fraying. Regular quilting cotton or something similar is recommended. If you use anything heavier than this, your sewing machine may struggle to get through all the layers in certain places. If making the Fawn/Reindeer, scraps of leather, suede, or felt are good for the antlers.
Please be aware of the following two points when choosing fabric: You will need to be able to iron your fabric, so some fabrics may be unsuitable for this reason. You will need to stabilise any stretchy fabrics by adding iron-on stabiliser to the back of the fabric before you start to prevent stretching as you sew on facial features.
Other Supplies & Notions; Spool of coordinating thread, Scraps of appliqué paper/fusible web, Scraps of contrasting fabric for facial features, Approximately 8″ (20cm) bias binding, twill tape, or ribbon for a loop to hang your stocking
Optional: Snaps or buttons to fasten “paws”, Scraps of medium-heavy weight interfacing, fleece, or felt to stiffen the ears and antlers
Sizes; The finished height is 21” (52cm), and the top opening diameter is approx 10” (25cm). There are instructions for printing the stockings at a smaller size.
