Advent Calendar 2023 – the ninth door

Happy Holidays! Things are starting to get pretty festive here – although the ‘festive’ side we get in New Zealand is a hot summer day at the beach and a Christmas dinner at the barbecue – the spirit of gift-giving is still a constant !

I made a new batch of stockings for my little family – there are two cats and two humans in this house, so everyone has their own stocking! Follow us and you can make a stocking for each of the animals and people in your life!

Material (for 2 human stockings and 2 pet stockings)

  • 1m main bottom fabric (I chose a stiff upholstery fabric – you may want to interface this to add structure)
  • 1 1/2 m of lining fabric
  • 0.3m faux fur for cuffs and paw applique
  • Ribbon for hanging loops
  • Christmas Stocking Pattern PDF (free download from this page, printed and glued together)

Additional embroidery supplies:

  • Embroidery thread for name and paw application
  • Tearable stabilizer
  • Water soluble embroidery topper
  • Spray type Odif 205
  • Duckbill Applique Scissors

I use the BERNINA 570 QE (NEW), BERNINA 9 embroidery software and the Embroidery module L (SDT) with the large oval hoop for this project. The paw print embroidery file measures 6.75″ by 5.5″, so any combination of embroidery machine and hoop that can fit this size will work! If you don’t have BERNINA embroidery software, I recommend trying the built-in fonts on your machine instead!

First prepare your supplies and print the included Christmas stocking PDF template from this page. A 1/2″ seam allowance is included in the pattern, indicated by the dotted lines.

Paw Print Applique

We start by embroidering the paw print appliqué before assembly. I prefer to cut out my pattern pieces first, but you can embroider and then cut out your stocking afterwards.

To install, place a piece of tear-away stabilizer in the large oval hoop and use the spray to float a pet stocking piece in the hoop, aligning it with the markings on the pattern piece.

Download and unzip the “paw-print.exp” file, load the paw print applique file onto your machine, then use the “Check” function to ensure placement is correct. Each edge of the paw print should be approximately 1″ from the edge of the seam or 1.5″ from the cut edge of the fabric.

If desired, set your machine to run a basting stitch to hold the bottom in place. I used the yellow high tension bobbin case with 60 thread embroidery bobbin thread and 40 thread white embroidery thread for this applique. There are three steps in the embroidery file: each is saved as a separate color so the machine stops between steps, but you will use the same color for the entire design.

basting and placement point for pet stocking applique

First, the machine sews a placement guide – a running stitch shaped like a paw print. Cut a piece of faux fur large enough to cover the placement guide and place it over the sewn tab. Proceed to step two – this will sew a zigzag score line to hold the fur in place.

Once scoring is complete, remove the hoop from the machine. Use your duckbill applique scissors to trim the excess fabric from the edges of the tack, as close to the edge as possible. Depending on the thickness of your fur, this step can be a bit of a mission, but take your time and try to trim as much as possible so that the fur doesn’t hang over the edges after the final sewing step.

When you’re happy with the fit, take the hoop back to your machine, lay a sheet of clear water-soluble topper over the embroidery (this will keep the fur contained and provide a neater result) – and sew the final step.

This step consists of an underlay to help contain the fur and a final pass with satin stitch. When the embroidery is finished, remove the excess decoration and run a lint roller over your paw print to capture any loose fur!

Name applied

Then we will embroider the names on each stocking cuff. I used Bernina Software 9 Designer Plus to create machine files for each member of the family, but Bernina machines also come with a range of built-in embroidery fonts, so you can choose to display the names directly on your machine .

In the software, create a new project and select the “Type and monograms” tool. Click on the design and type your name, then double-click the name to view your text settings. Here you can select a font and make size decisions. I chose ‘Lisa’ for my four stockings and measured each one to be 45mm high. Your choice of size and font may be different – ​​in general, try to keep the width of each name under 15cm to fit on the cuff.

When you are happy with the name, save it as an embroidery file, repeat the process for each name you need, then import the files to your machine.

Float a cut cuff piece in the large oval hoop with spray, like we did for the paw prints, and center each name on the pattern piece in the hoop.

Before sewing, lay a sheet of dissolvable topper over the fur to keep the fur under control so everything looks nice and neat!

Bottom assembly

We are almost there! You should now have embroidered cuffs for each member of your family and appliqued paw prints for each four-legged friend. The final step is to return to sewing mode and make our stockings.

Sew each stocking front to the cuff underlay, an outer cuff and a lining, in that order. Repeat the process for the back – a diagram is included below.

Bottom stitching on either side of the faux fur cuff – this will help the cuff fabric to curl at the top and bottom, concealing the edges for a neater finish.

Starting with the lining, sew the stocking front assembly to the back assembly, aligning the cuffs and leaving a 3-inch gap in the lining to turn your stocking inside out. Turn it right side out and hand-stitch (or machine-stitch along the edges) to close the hole in the lining.

Tuck the lining inside the cuff and position the cuff so that it folds over the main bottom fabric. This step can take a little time, especially if you used a slippery lining fabric like I did! I chose to do a few tack stitches to also hold my folded cuff in place – this may be helpful depending on the type of fabric you have chosen.

Finally, add the ribbon – cut a 6 inch piece of ribbon and sew it onto all layers of stockings – you can opt for a hanging loop here, but I prefer the flexibility of being able to attach my stockings to their hooks.

After a final pressing, your stockings are finished! Mine passed Theo and Stella’s sniff test – it’ll be Stella’s first Christmas, but Theo knows what his stocking means! He was already looking for the treats that will soon be inside!

I hope your vacation is filled with joy and you have plenty of time to do all your sewing too! If you’d like to see what else I do, I’m sure Instagram, Tic TacAnd Youtubeand I would really like you to come say hello to me!
