How to Embroider a Festive Polarfleece Stockingcomments (9) November 15th, 2008
Start by cutting out the stocking using the pattern that you downloaded (or you can use any stocking pattern you already have). Lay the pattern piece on a double layer of fleece and cut out two at once. Cut out the lining fabric the same way.
Import the design you are going to use into your embroidery machine. I hooped a layer of mesh cut-away and used temporary adhesive spray to adhere the stocking into the hoop. Then I positioned a single design on the screen and copy/pasted three more to get an overall design I was happy with. Depending on the size of your largest hoop, you might have to rehoop to embroider all the way up the stocking. Layer a piece of clear wash-away stabilizer over the fleece before you start to embroider.
