1 piece measuring 16” wide x 6” long in the main fabric. PLUS 2 pieces measuring 4” square for the tops, and 1 x 6” x 4.5” wide piece for the toes and ankles.

Instructions (click here for printer friendly instructions):
3. Iron and place on the table right side up. Place the one piece stocking on top, wrong side facing. Look at where the joins are and move around until you are happy with the size of the toes and ankle sections (remember 1/4” will be lost when sewn).
4. Mark the top edge of the stocking and then trim the top edge of the bottom piece.
10. Unfold the stocking tops and sew a line down each side as sewn in the image above.
11. Trim and fold over using the bias creases, you will end up with a 1/4” of the stocking top on the inside of the stocking and the rest on the outside.
