This is only my second post so sorry if I do something wrong...

I'm making a stocking for my best friend for Christmas, but I'm really not sure what kind of fabric to use. She would love this, do you think it would work?

My suggestion would be to take this post to the sewing board under discussion and questions.  Those craftsters know better than anyone what is the best fabric to use for different projects.

I looked at the fabric.  I think it's awesome.  But not knowing anything about how fabrics act when you do different things to them, I can't even give you good advice.

It would work. As it is a knit fabric, I would interface it so it holds its shape better - you dont want it stretching out of shape when you put the pressies in!

I would love to see a pic when you have made it!
