Great felt and fabric stockings to hang up the doorway.

Start with printing the templates. And cut the shapes in fabric and felt. Sew the front and the back of the stocking shapes together leaving a ¼” seam. Turn them inside out. And for the cuff, cut out an 8” x 16” rectangle from matching felt. And sew the ends together with again a ¼” seam. Turn inside out and slide over the top of the stocking. Tuck 3 inches off the cuff from the inside off the top of the stocking. Hot-glue it in place. Glue together a ¾” x 10” strip of a matching felt to make a loop and hot-glue it to the stocking.

And from the cotton batting, cut out a shape of a head somewhat smaller than the felt pieces. Keep the batting piece between the shapes of the head and hot-glue them together. Cut a 6” x 48” rectangle and sew it together on the long sides. Turn inside out (use the selvage as edge on the short ends to avoid fraying). Once you have attached the body features. (Click here).
