Hi All, I love doing crafts but the finishing seems to be my down fall. It all looks great until then. Anyway I made a Christmas Stocking from a kit for my GD but I don't know if I should sew it right sides together and turn it out or hand sew it on the outside edges. At this point I have no confidence left. Anyone have any suggestions. Thank, Nancy

Hi Nancy and welcome to Sew Whats New.
With felt you can put sew with wrong sides together and be done with it. Simple handsewing or perhaps a buttonhole stitch for the edge would be nice. Or another option is to trim the edge with pinking shears. Felt is very forgiving, don't stress over it.

I used a blanket edge stitch for the boys last year.
