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.

Here is a close-up of the embroidery. You can see how the wash-away stabilizer helps the stitching to form nicely on the surface of the fleece.

Gently pull the wash-away stabilizer away from the edges of the embroidery.

Gently tear away the stabilizer   Use tweezers to get the small pieces in between the stitching.


Take the embroidery out of the hoop and lay it face down on a cutting board. Trim the mesh stabilizer so that it's even with the outside edge of the stocking.

Cut soft n sheer stabilizer away from the edge of the stocking   Sewing the stabilizer into the seams when you put the stocking together will help keep the embroidery design from stretching out of shape when you fill the stocking with goodies!

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.
