  1. Print stocking and cuff templates, and cut out.
  2. Using tailor's chalk, trace smaller stocking template onto 2 pieces of wool; trace larger template onto felt. Use scissors to cut wool and pinking shears to cut felt.
  3. Trace cuff template onto 2 pieces of wool. Cut out, using pinking shears for bottom edge.
  4. Create an eyelet pattern on bottom edge of cuffs: Starting at the bottom, punch 3 rows of holes, using the screw punch's 3 settings (smallest to largest).

    Seeking advice: What is meant by thin wool? Is lightweight wool suiting fabric appropriate?

    The projects requires only 1 piece of colored felt (stocking shape) , 2 pieces of thin wool (neutral color for stocking shape) plus 2 cuff pieces. It is 5 layers. you sew the cuff thin felt and colored piece together 1/4" from the top. Then you do the same with the remaining thin felt and cuff. Then pin together both and sew all around. Because you have sewn the tops together separately you will have only one pocket. Hope this helps.

    I love the look of these stockings, but I am a little confused by the directions! Do I need two pieces of felt for the stocking? Will I have two pockets on the finished product if I just have 1 piece of felt? Thanks for any advice!
