Step 2

Fold the fabric (right-sides facing), and place the pattern on top; cut out both layers at once. Sew all around. Turn the stocking right-side out.

Step 3

Cut ribbon and hand-stitch a loop onto the top edge. (The raw edge will be hidden behind the shearling.)

Step 4

Fold the shearling (right sides facing). Place the cuff template on top, left (straight) side on the fold of the shearling. Cut out the shearling. Hand-stitch the shearling cuff to the top edge of the stocking. Stitch the edges closed using a whip stitch.
