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.

Place the embroidered front of the stocking right sides together with the back and pin them together. Do the same for the lining.

pin stocking and linings together   Use a 1/2-inch seam allowance to sew the stocking and lining together.

Clip notches along the outside curves. This will give the toe and heel a nice shape when you turn it to the right side.

clip corners   Along the outside curves, clip notches.

Clip the inside curves to get a nice smooth shape.

clip inside curves   Be careful not to clip through the stitching.

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.
