Bring the right side out for the stocking outer and keep the lining on its wrong side.


Push the outer into the lining.


Line up the top edges and put clips or pins all around.


Sew around the top edges, leaving an opening of about 2- inches to turn the right side out.


Pull the right side out through the opening.


This is how it will look like.


Push the lining into the outer, tuck the raw edges in, and press to make it clean and crisp.


Topstitch around the top edge.


Fold the top edge towards the outside by 2- inches and press to set. Your stocking cuff is formed.


Next, we make the loop for hanging.


1)Take one fabric piece, 5- inches long and 2- inches wide.
2) Fold the two long edges towards the wrong side by 1/2- inch and press to set.
3) Fold in half lengthwise and press again.
4) Sew it shut along the edge of the folds.


Fold the loop in half, keep it on the cuff, along the inside and sew back and forth a few times to secure it.


Your Christmas stocking is ready for use!
