COVID-19: We are shipping as normal, but occasionally orders may take 2-3 days to complete.

We use Royal Mail first class post, which should arrive next day, however, some orders are taking considerably longer to arrive. Please understand that once a parcel leaves the shop, I have no control over its progress. Please be kind when informing me that your order has not yet arrived. Believe me, I'm as frustrated as you.

Before ordering, click the "Requirements" tab for an easy way to add the required products. They are added at the same time as the pattern, so make sure you select the items you want before clicking "Add to Basket".


Leaflet consists of 3 different patterns. The hand-dye threads are given. The DMC alternates are given in brackets. 

Please note that you will not get the same effect using DMCs.

Each stocking finishes about 3" x 5" when stitched on 30ct Fabric. A fat 1/16 (qty: 1 fat) will be enough to stitch all 3 stockings, but I would suggest stitching them all before cutting the fabric.

Select the items you wish to add and click "add to cart" above.

If you've already added the pattern to the cart, adding these items will add it again, so check the quantity of the original pattern before checking out.

IMPORTANT: Check quantities required on the Info Tab before checking out (Quick Add only adds 1 to the cart).

I don't know about you, but I hate having to buy more fabric than I want, so I try to make it as flexible as I can for you, my lovely, lovely shoppers, so you can order in multiples of 1/16 (9" x 13.5") as per the table below:

9" squares are a popular size for many of Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks designs. You can get six 9" squares from a fat 1/4 (4 fat) and twelve from a fat 1/2 (8 fat).

Please note: we do NOT do odd cuts (3, 5 etc), so an order of 3 will be a 1/16 and an 1/8. 

* This is approximate. What I actually do is cut the fabric down from the piece provided by the manufacturer, usually a yard or fat 1/2 yard. This can result in slightly smaller (or sometimes larger!) pieces, so always allow for this when choosing your cut.

For this size piece (inches): Which we call: Order this many: and choose this cut:
9 x 13.5 Fat 1/16 1 Fat
13.5 x 18 Fat 1/8 2 Fat
9 x 27 Long 1/8 2 Long
18 x 27 Fat 1/4 4 Fat
13.5 x 36 Long 1/4 4 Long
27 x 36 Fat 1/2 8 Fat
