How to Embroider a Festive Polarfleece Stockingcomments (9) November 15th, 2008
To make the loop for the stocking, cut a 2 x 9-inch strip of fleece. Fold in half lenghtwise and stitch using a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Trim the seam allowance to 1/4 inch. Turn the tube to the right side. If you have a Fasturn Set, check out Shannon's post for details on how to use that wonderful tool! If not, here's an easy way to use a screwdriver to turn a short tube.
Turn the ends into the opening and use a small screwdriver to push the ends in farther.
When you can't push the screwdriver in any farther, start to smooth the outer portion of the tube toward the handle of the screwdriver. It just takes a few seconds to push the outer portion of the tube out of the way so you can see the end at the tip of the screwdriver that's turned to the right side.
Matching the raw edges, position the cuff at the top of the stocking, wrong side of cuff facing right side of the stocking. Position the loop so that the ends are centered to the left and right of the seam that's over the heal of the stocking. Baste the loop in place.
