    Fold into loop, raw edges together, and place

    inside stocking at top heel edge, with the loop

    facing the heel of the stocking. Pin the loop so

    that it will not get caught in the seam.

    Stitch into place.

    Place the raw edges of cuff (RS out) to the

    inside of the stocking,

    If embroidered, place name/embroidery design

    against the lining inside and sew or serge the

    top edges together.

    Flip the cuff from the inside to the outside and

    admire your Magic Stocking.

    Instead of a cuff, binding can be applied to the

    top raw edges.
