Patchwork Christmas Stocking Project

The holiday season is well on its way!

Get into the festive spirit and create this quilted Christmas stocking sewing pattern. Feel free to get creative and play with different colours and textures to create a truly unique design in the patchwork. You can even go through your scrap draw to find some inspo!

With PFAFF’s exclusive IDT system, when you create the Christmas stocking sewing pattern you will get precisely pieced patchwork, thanks to the perfectly even top and bottom feeding.

We have used AccuQuilt’s Cutting system to make it even easier to get perfect squares for this project. We’ve also included the sizes of the squares required if you prefer to cut them out using a rotary cutter and mat.

What are you waiting for? Let’s get started on your Christmas stocking sewing pattern!


Here is what you need to gather to make your Christmas stocking sewing pattern (Our tip: grab some extra supplies at your local store as it will be hard to stop at just one!).

Cutting and Preparation

1 ) Cut out your Assorted Christmas fabric into squares either using your AccuQuilt GO! Cutter and AccuQuilt GO! Square-2 ½” Multiples Die (AQ55059), or cut to size using your rotary cutter and Cutting Mat.

2 ) Using the Christmas Stocking Template Cut 2 x of the lining fabric.


All Seams are ¼” Unless otherwise stated

1 ) Start piecing your squares together randomly or you can choose to arrange them in a pattern. (have fun choosing!) Create 2 x  rectangles that are 5 x 8 squares in size.

2 ) If you want to use the same pattern we used here is the diagram:

  1. Using the Christmas Stocking Template cut out this shape from each patchworked rectangle. 

NOTE: Make sure your toe faces both directions. By matching the wrong sides together he will help you get the pieces facing the correct way.

4 ) Match one patchwork fabric with 1 lining fabric piece. Ensure that the toes are pointing in the same direction. Place these piece right sides together and sew across the top of the two pieces. Press open.

5 ) Repeat Step 2 for the remaining pieces.

6 ) Match up the front and back pieced units with right sides together with outside fabrics matched up and lining fabrics matched up.

7 ) Sew around the outside of the stocking pieces, leaving a small opening about 5cm for turning in the lining piece.

8 ) Prior to turning, cut notches in the curves of the stocking, especially in the toe. This will help prevent fabric puckers.

9 ) On the inner side clip the fabric close to the seam. This will remove some excess bulk in the seam.

10 ) Pull right-side out. Carefully push out the curves, and once they are pushed out press. Tuck the open ends into the stocking and topstitch the opening closed.
