    You can just draw out a stocking shape and then start putting pieces of fabric on it like you would for paper piecing only in a crazy quilt design or whatever design suits your fancy. Then "quilt as desired" , add a back piece and lining, bind and make a hanging loop and you're done.

    Works much like making a tote bag. Very easy!

    Oh, you do want to make it a bit bigger than you think you need to in order to allow for the bulkiness of the quilting.

    I made 8 Christmas stockings last year. I used a piece of muslin (I don't think you call it muslin in US but if is very thin fabric) and then sewed pieces of fabric on and flipped them over and then another one until the stocking shape was covered. Sewed it to the back piece and added a hanging tag and lining. Really easy

    Thanks everyone. I'm better with a pattern I can follow and would like to appliqué something like Santa or a snowman on it and that's what I'm having trouble with, finding the Santa or snowman pattern. I'll guess I'll just try to find pictures on the internet and draw it myself.

    I did a number of stockings by taking a block that I liked and making a good sized piece of fabric of that block, then cutting out a stocking shape, layering and quilting. Use the first one to cut the second for the other side of the stocking (don't forget to turn over for back) and use the binding to put the sides together. You can use any simple block and Xmas fabrics and it'll look great.
