This is the 4th time I have made one of these stockings. Just have very sharp, small scissors, in addition to the regular good material scissors. It takes over 100 hours to complete, worth ever moment. I make a my own stocking back using the felt provided to protect the back where all the threads tie. That way the stocking is sturdier and you don't have any worries when you stuff it on the mantel each year.
I love the XXXXXXX stocking kits! I have made several for members of my family. They look so beautiful and impressive hanging up on the mantle. The only problems I have come across when making these stockings are the light dashed lines printed on the felt can be very hard to see making it hard to place the applique correctly. Also, the directions omit the "stuffing" direction occasionally. You need to look at the colored picture of the finished stocking to confirm what pieces to stuff. All in all, I think you will love this completed stocking and want to make more of them!
