Christmas Stockings Galore!

For 3 days (on and off) I drew, cut, sewed and finished stockings for each person in our department.  It wasn't a hard job but it was one that took a little time and effort.  To make a stocking for someone special you will need:

wool felt
hot glue gun & sticks

Step 1: Using the template draw the stocking onto the felt (you will need two). 

Step 2: Cut out the two stocking parts.

Step 3: Place stockings right sides together and sew a 1/4 inch seam all the way around leaving the top open.

Step 4: Flip the stocking!

Step 5: Trim the top with decorative scissors or pinking shears and fold down 1".

Step 6: Cut 2" of ribbon (make sure you cut the ends on an angle).  Fold the ribbon in half and hot glue to the front of the stocking.  Glue button on top of fold.  Now you have your finished stocking!
