How to Make It:

  1. Trace the pattern from the downloadable pdf onto tracing paper; cut out.
  2. For each stocking, trace the stocking shape onto the solid red paper and the patterned vellum, making sure the toes point in the same direction.
  3. Use deckle-edge scissors to cut out the red stocking, which is the stocking back. Use straight scissors to cut out the vellum, which is the stocking front, trimming 3/4 inch smaller than the back along the curved edges. Cut a cuff sized to fit the stocking from desired coordinating patterned paper.
  4. Using a stylus, score the stocking back 3/16 inch in from the curved edges. Clip to the scored line. Fold the deckle edge along the scored line.
  5. Place the vellum stocking front over the red stocking back, encasing the vellum edges with the folded-over back edges. Glue the deckle edges to the vellum. Trim the patterned cuff by gluing on additional patterned papers, ribbon, or beading. Glue the cuff to the stocking front.
