Stocking Sacks with Susan Madu of Modern Blended Quilts on Zoom

Stocking sacks are perfect smaller projects that you can complete in an afternoon.  They are a great way to wrap a gift or give as a gift.

Constructing a lined bag can often be difficult and frustrating to turn the bag right side out through a small opening, not with this bag.   You can personalize with your colour choices and personalize the stockings with simple hand stitching using a simple chalk transfer method.

Finished Stocking Sack is 7” wide x 5” deep x 14” high.  After you make one, you will see how easily it can be sized up or down in size.

This 3 hour stocking workshop demonstrates:
- Working with directional fabrics while minimizing bulk in the bottom seam
- Simple method for constructing a lined bag with fabric drawstrings
- Chalk transfer method for personalizing the sack with Big stitch hand quilting.

Susan says "Christmas Stockings have always been a highlight for our family. This pattern grew out of a need for a stocking that would hold the contributions of many “Santa’s” to our stockings and ensuing the contents were hidden from prying eyes.
