Note that the stockings do not come pre-cut: you receive one large piece of Aida and the same of red felt that you ned to measure and cut yourself. Not a big deal, just thought I should mention it. You will need cardboard and cotton batting to complete the stockings - was a bit surprised the latter wasn't included but, again, this isn't really a big deal. I was disappointed that the kit was missing a couple of colored yarns. Called the Customer Service number for the company, and spoke to a pretty snotty representative. They're mailing me the yarns. I haven't started the stockings yet but I know they'll look great. Instructions are clear and comprehensive. Great value for money.
