Unpin and turn inside out ready for sewing up. Pin again for easy sewing.

Stitch the stocking leaving the gap at the top. You can hand stitch or use a sewing machine if you have one.

Turn your stocking the right way out and check for any gaps (they may need re-stitching)

Make 6 pom poms in various colours.

Stitch pom poms to cuff of stocking leaving enough thread tail so they can hang at various lengths.
