Woodland Stockings

Craft these cute creatures with felt, fabric, and buttons using our free templates.

To make the stockings, print templates and cut all shapes out of corresponding felt and fabric. Sew the front and back of the stocking shapes together with a ¼" seam; turn inside out. For the cuff, cut an 8" x 16" rectangle from matching felt, sew ends together with ¼" seam, then turn inside out and slide over the top of the stocking. Tuck 3 inches of the cuff inside the top of the stocking; hot-glue in place. Glue together a ¾" x 10" strip of matching felt to form a loop and hot-glue to the stocking. From cotton batting, cut out a head shape slightly smaller than the felt pieces. Sandwich the batting piece between the head shapes and hot-glue the layers together. For the scarf, cut a 6" x 48" rectangle and stitch together on long sides; turn inside out (use selvage as edge on short ends to avoid fraying). After attaching the body features (see below), wrap cotton scarf twice and tie.

Deer: Arrange facial features in this order: ears, antlers, cheeks, nose. Then, for the eyes, layer the eyelashes behind the white eye shape and use ¾" buttons for the pupils. Hot-glue everything in place.

Fox: First, hot-glue the outer ear shapes to the back of the head. Next hot-glue the cheeks, nose, and eyes, including ½" buttons for pupils. Finish by attaching the belly and inner ear fabric shapes with hot glue.

Owl: Start by hot-gluing the ears in place. Then layer the eye shapes (including ¾" buttons for the pupils) and beak and hot-glue in place along with the belly. Crease wings with an iron and glue to sides under cuff.
