How To Make A Quick Fusible Patchwork Christmas Stocking

The editor of one of the online craft sites I make videos for requested Christmas stockings so I designed this one to use up small scraps of Christmas fabrics and the patches are fused-not sewn. It is a simple pattern but the patchwork and the cuff that can be fancied up make a real centerpiece on the mantel and it uses up snippets that might just end up being thrown in the trash-goes to show ya-don't throw anything away.

My step by step video shows you how to make the stocking from creating your own fabric by fusing scraps to the finish sewing.
 The downloadable PDF pattern is available in My Pattern Store @ http://www.craftsy.com/user/43851/pattern-store with my other patterns.
