    COSunflower I traced a store bought stocking on a poster board then enlarged it by 2" all the way around. I got tired of not being able to find stockings big enough for my horses treats! I think once I had the stocking pattern cut out I just eyeballed the cuff pattern size. Over the years I've made them from just about all types of fabric, pre quilted, cotton, costume type stuff. The cotton/costume fabrics, I back with fleece and quilt them. Personally, I like a thicker, squishy stocking. My daughter's and I's have bells sewn onto the point of the cuff. They are currently MIA, lol.

    Well the new sewing machine came with broken bobbin winder, bent needle shaft and bobbin door. Yep I cried. Let the seller and Amazon know how sad I was. So Amozon refunded and covered pickup. Then they offered me this...

    Forcast!!!!! That is the one I have!!!! I love it now that Ive conquered the threading and bobbin winding!!! It has a built in needle threader too. The only downside is that we will have to order the bobbins from the Brother company as they are a TALLER plastic bobbin and the ones at the stores that say they will fit a Brothef machine WON'T as they arent tall enough. I'm going to buy a bunch to keep on hand because the machine is a limited edition and they might not make them forever.
