This 3-hour Stitching Post class was to demonstrate the Viking serger flatlock stitch by making a crazy patch stocking.

We used 2 1/2" strips assembled in a random pattern to create the "fabric" using the 3-thread flatlock stitch. Then we cut the stocking shape; converted back to a 4-thread overlock stitch; serged a hanger; attached the lining to the tops of the stocking front and back (made of non-flatlocked fabric); then attached the front to the back leaving an opening to turn.

I used 100% cotton quilting fabric and other students used velvet, sequined fabric, and wools to create more elegant stockings, although it was more difficult to fold-out the thicker fabrics.

Here's a close-up of the flatlocking on my stocking. Wow! What a fun way to learn this stitch. And now that I know how to set it up, I could make additional stockings in 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Such a great way to use up scraps!
