How to line a knitted Christmas stocking

So here’s what you need to line your Christmas stocking:

  • fabric for lining;
  • needle;
  • thread;
  • sewing machine (optional);
  • iron;
  • pins;
  • scissors;

Before we start, I want you to know that I am not a sewer. I’m far from it. Like…way over there behind that hill you don’t see…

But we can still do a simple lining for a stocking. Right? So, let’s get started:



1

Remove stocking, and draw another line inside of your first line (1 cm apart from first) – this is for sewing part.

6

Before you cut it out, put pins through both layers – this way you can cut both fabric layers at once

(yes, there are pins…)

Now cut the lining out

8

Sew two sides together leaving top side opened (sew along the inner line you draw). I used my sewing machine, but you can also sew by hand.

Fit lining nicely inside, fold a bit of knitted edging inside (over the lining), and sew. You can use sewing machine, but I sewed it by hand.

Usually, if I’m knitting a Christmas stocking, I will work one knit round and one purl round before I start with the pattern work, just for this turning purpose. Working the beginning this way will ensure me that I can easily fold the edging, and the outcome will be nice and crisp.
