Fabrics and Notions You’ll Need to Sew a Minky Fabric Stocking

These products can be substituted for whatever you have on hand, but here is what Teresa recommends for her stocking sewing tutorial.

Teresa used these fabrics for her sample:

  • Digital Cuddle® Midnight Deer
  • Antlers Cuddle® Navy
  • Cuddle® 3 Snow
  • Cuddle® 3 Ivory
  • Luxe Cuddle® Seal Snow
  • Silky Satin Solids

Tips for Sewing a Minky Fabric Stocking (with AccuQuilt Die)

  • Cut up to two layers of Cuddle® at a time.
  • Lay Cuddle® wrong side against the blade to cut.
  • If using Luxe Cuddle®, cut cuffs individually with scissors (rather than the die).
  • When using Luxe Cuddle® for the cuff, use one layer and leave a raw edge.
  • Fuse interfacing to Cuddle® (optional) with a medium heat iron and a pressing cloth.
  • Quilt Cuddle® 3 prior to cutting to add visual interest.
  • Add appliques such as the AccuQuilt Gingerbread Cookie die.
