How to Make It

  1. Cut five 17-x-2-1/4-inch strips of white felt.
  2. On each strip, fold back each raw long edge and press lightly.
  3. Measure and mark 1/2-inch spaces on each long side of the strips. Using red embroidery floss, stitch large X shapes to join the strips.
  4. Enlarge the stocking pattern using a photocopier. Cut the stocking front out of the strip assembly and cut the stocking back out of white felt.
  5. With right sides together and using a 1/4-inch seam allowance, sew the stocking front to the back, leaving the top edges open. Trim the seams and clip the curves.
  6. Turn the stocking right side out. Fold the top edge of the stocking over 1/4-inch and topstitch.
  7. Using scalloped-edge scissors, cut a 3-x-19-inch length of stiffened white crafts felt for a stocking cuff.
  8. Stitch large X shapes along the center of the cuff strip. With right sides together and using a 1/4-inch seam allowance, sew the short edges of the embroidered cuff strip together. Turn and press.
  9. Glue or hand-stitch the cuff to the top edge of the stocking.
