Layla's Felt Stocking Tutorial

I, Layla am going to show you how to make a simple felt stocking as it is nearing the christmas season.
Here are the ridiculously simple directions:

1. Get everything out:

2. Draw the outline on felt & cut it out :

3. Place the cut out stocking on another sheet of felt and draw around that:

4. You will then have 1 cut out stocking piece & 1 to be cut out:
 5.  Cut the second one out: ...
6. Then place them together & start blanket stitching Them together, leaving the top open:

7. Keep doing it: ...

 8. Round the bend & making progress:

 9. Till the top, then tie it off:

Ta Daa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:
For the design I am going to make a snow man though you can do anything to design it. Here's how I did my design:
1. Cut out 2 circles of white felt:

2. Using a hot glue gun put glue on the stocking: ...
3. Then place 1 circle on the glue:
4. and glue on the next: ...
5. then cut out a brim for his hat out of black felt & glue it in place:
 6. and the top of the hat: ...
7. then add his eyes, nose & mouth : ...

8. glue on his buttons which are made of felt: ...
9. cut out his arms & glue them on : ...

10. then using a glue stick put glue everywhere but on the snow man:
11. and sprinkle silver glitter on : ...

12. and so it will hang: ...

IT'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are a few others I,ve done:

Hope you enjoy making them. Please tell me if you do.
