I never made a stocking before...it was a lot of trial and error, but I finally figured it out So luckily, you all don't have to do the trial and error thing since I did it for you. All you have to do is follow these instructions :)...
You'll need (all depends on the size of your stocking):
3/4 yard of fabric for the front bottom piece
1/2 yard of felt -coordinating color
1/4 yard of coordinating fabric for the fold
Step 1: Trace a stocking on the felt fabric leaving about a half inch allowance all around it. Either free hand it, or use a stocking you already have. Make sure the folded part is not folded anymore to get the right length. Now cut it out. (the felt will be the back of your stocking)
For my fabric, I chose a faux white fur.
Step 4: On one end of your coordinating piece, fold over about half an inch or so and iron with invisible hemming tape.
Step 6: Now sew the two pieces together along their seam. Leave about 1/4"seam allowance. One will be facing the opposite directing as the other when its all done.
