These are my first Christmas stockings ever!

I guess they're ok...

I also got the template for download, just in case you wanna try it too.

Here's the link: http://www.interney.net/blogs/media/blogs/comofaz/bota.pdf

The first step is to cut the mold and hold the felt with pins.

This template does the left for the seam, then time to cut, leave a niece. There are two parts, ok?

If it helps, to sew all the same size, select the template with a chalk. So you will be able to follow the brand's time to sew.

Cut 2 strips of about 7 cm in height, with the same width of the boot, felt or other color. Secure with a pin, edge with edge, on top of parts of the boot. To stay on the sweet, perfect place both boots -heel to heel

Pass the seam on top, one piece at a time.

Now join the two pieces, front with front, ie, with colored ribbons out.

Now the trick: before moving the seam that will close the boot, turn the colored bands inside. The seam will be hidden on the back of the fold.

This is also the time to hold a strip of felt, to serve as a hanging. It will stay on top, on the same side of the heel slightly raised. The strip is in the middle of the "sandwich" between the two parts.

Now yes the piece is ready to go to the machine! You will pass in the seam all around, but not at the top.

Now just turn to the right.
