I have done numerous ******* craft kits over the years, and this is the 6th stocking I've made, so I'm not really following the directions anymore. I can see what the previous review is talking about tho. For me, it's just easier to do what makes sense, rather than try and do what they say,... It's pretty simple to follow the numerical order along with the guide and the picture on the package. One thing I will say, is I've never finished them as instructed. That seems cheap and flimsy. All my stockings get lined and I add a fleece cuff to the top. I embroider the name on a piece of felt and appliqué it to the cuff. They each have their own unique ribbon hanger that I reinforce with decorative buttons.. They are holding up beautifully- some 10 years old. I don't know how much weight you could hold if finished as instructed with a thin felt hanger.....I think of these kits as a base and add my own imagination!
I have embroidered / cross stitched many of the Jack Dempsey quilt tops, especially the baby ones. These are always printed clearly and are nicely laid out so they are not too busy. I love the material they are made of, it is solid and consistant in quality. I have this one nearly done and look forward to making it into a throw blanket for my newly decorated sewing room.
