Small stoles for Baptism

by Patricia Puglise
(Southern New Jersey)

I'm a grandmom who has her two six year old grandsons living with her. As they were abandoned by their mother, I am helping my son raise the boys.

We are finally going to have them Baptized, and I will be making them white brocade stoles to wear since they will not be wearing a Christening outfit. This will also be a keepsake of their receiving their first Sacrament.

Since the stoles will only be worn once, do I still have to use interfacing? I was planning on using the white liturgical brocade on both sides rather than line in plain satin. Is that okay to do?

I will be applying a small iron-on gold cross on both bottoms. Should I also try to hand stitch them in place before sewing the pieces together? Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Pat Puglise

Baptismal Stoles

Hi Pat,

Congratulations on the upcoming baptisms of your grandsons. As for the stoles, I would still recommend adding the interfacing. Without the interfacing, the stoles will be way too light and likely won't hang right.

As for the lining, brocade on both sides will work just fine.

Since the stole is only going to be worn once, iron-on appliques should work, so you likely don't need to hand-stitch them as well before sewing the pieces together.

Hope this helps!
