This is a fun project to work on. The thread was a nightmare to separate, but once that part was finished it was much better and the stockings could be made pretty quickly. The kit is designed for the stockings to be made into flat ornaments rather than stockings you can actually put things in, which I didn't realize. I'm making mine into usable stockings to give as gifts to family this Christmas. Despite the minor flaws, this is a fun product that I would recommend to others.
