the large scallop isn't cut with a shaped scissor. Trace around a circle of the size you like onto a piece of paper and make a template for yourself to trace.

She is probably using wool felt b/c MS never skrimps on quality. That probably punches better than the eco felt which is cheaper, which most people like using.

To sew the cuff on you're basically making up the stocking part and making up the cuff seperately then tucking the cuff inside the stocking with the top edges lining up so you can sew it around then turn it down and the seam allowance doesn't show. I hope that is more clear.

If you want to do the design but not punch it, you could always do some glue on rhinestones. Silver or white would be pretty...

Good for you!  Sounds like a cool project.  I took a look at your blog too and you have some nice stuff.  I am sure with the talent you already have, the stockings will come out just fine.  

Felt can be tricky, especially if your tools are not sharp or in good shape.  I once tried making Victorian cornucopias out of felt and it was a disaster.  Use good felt, not the dollar store stuff.  

Good Luck!

These are really cute!

I'm wondering where you would get pieces of felt big enough to accommodate? I usually only see the 8x11 stuff.

Any JoAnn craft store will have the wide goods felt in both wool and the recycled water bottle polyester.
