    Cut out the cloth patterns. Cut out two pieces of outside fabric and another two pieces of lining fabric in the shape of a stocking. It will be better if the outside fabric is a combination of red and green which can reflect the feeling of Christmas, so you can make a patchwork to achieve this.

    Sew the lining fabric. Do the same to sew two lining fabrics. You need to leave a hole a few inches wide at the bottom of the lining fabric to turn the stocking through.
