First we drew and cut a stocking pattern out of tracing paper:
I wanted the chevron fabric to fold over, so we had to figure out how to sew it on and have it face the right direction. The hardest part about these stockings is all the right side/wrong side sewing. I hope this little tutorial will help!
Cut the stocking pieces. (Remember to pay attention to which direction they will hang! We messed up on one and had to re-do it.)
Sew a piece (same sizes) of the chevron fabric to the top. This will be the fold over. Lay the stocking pieces right side down. The 'fold over' piece will go right side to wrong side. Sew along the top.
Next, put your two stocking pieces right sides together and pin. The 'fold over' pieces at the top should be wrong sides together or right sides out as shown here. (Confusing I know!)
Now sew around the stocking. Do not sew the 'fold over' pieces yet!
Turn the stocking inside out and think "Hey, it looks like a stocking! Cute!"
Sew along the two edges.
Now fold over the 'fold over' pieces. And Ta-Da! It's a stocking!
Last, I sewed some ribbon loops for hanging.

This is what the backs look like:
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!!
We're hoping for snow!!
