- Fabric - wool, felt or most any kind.

- Batting or fiber fill for stocking top
- Jingle bell
Print pattern. Layout on the fabric you choose. Cut two.
Cut four pieces of coordinating fabric, as shown, approximately 3/4" by 2", trimming as needed. Pin in place.
Start sewing the toe of the stocking first and then stuff with batting or fiber fill. Recommend blanket stitch.
Continue sewing the rest of the stocking, leaving the top open for filling the remainder of the ornament. Fill as desired and close by whip stitching the top as indicated.
Cut a piece of batting or other fabric for the top of the stocking to approximately 6" by 2 1/2", turning under the bottom edge 1/4".
Fold over the top of the stocking and the sides. Pin and sew in place. Be sure to sew the top portion to the stocking so it will not come off. Leave enough embroidery floss to loop as the hanger.
Sew on the jingle bell and you're done.
