Create the Stocking

 

Note From Team Nancy 

 

You’re the designer! The stocking front may be made from Wild At Heart Buffalo Plaid Black or Wild At Heart Bears! Note: The stocking pattern is directional, so be sure to cut out the stocking back in the opposite direction! Place stocking front fabric to stocking back fabric –wrong sides together– before cutting!
