My Boyds Bear has found a very cozy home in this fleece stocking!
The chenille cuff is a nice contrast to the plain white fleece.
Use the pattern that you can download to cut out the fleece stocking.

Trim the entire seam allowance to 1/4 inch to reduce bulk.

trim seam allowances to 1/4   I used a rotary cutter and just zipped along the edge, being careful not to get too close to the stitching.

Cut a rectangle measuring 4 x 19 inches out of the contrasting fabric to make the cuff. Turn one long edge under 1/2 inch.

Turn lower edge of cuff under 1/2   To make the cuff, cut out a 4 x 19-inch rectangle from a contrasting color.

Topstitch the hem in place to finish the lower edge of the cuff. Fold the cuff in half, right sides together, and sew the short ends together, completing the cuff. (Now it's ready to attach to the top of the stocking.)

Hem lower edge   Because my fabric had a chenille grid, I fussy cut along the grid to get the chenille pattern to be even across the cuff. I used the grid as a guide to hem the lower edge, too.

Then open write mail and right click in the message area. Left click and select paste. Print as you would print any email. I find this works for the most stubborn files.
