Animal Stocking - Materials List

Fabric Requirements


Fabric Amount

Stocking exterior

34” x 26” (86 x 66cm)


34” x 26” (86 x 66cm)


Scraps - with the largest piece needed being approx 12.5” x 10” (32cm x 26cm).


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 and 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 the facial features.
