Jane Parker from Cornwall, UK:
I would give 5 stars for the embroidery stitch-out. I have only given 4 stars because the combination of interfaced quilters cotton used double with additional applique and machine embroidery makes for a very stiff stocking. In the future I will use the stitch layout with a single layer of fabric leaving enough at the top to stitch a lining in afterwards using the sewing rather than embroidery machine. It will be easy to do as the guide lines are already there for adding the backing by sewing machine and then lining the stocking. I made the 9 x 5.5 inch stocking so perhaps it wouldn't be so cumbersome with the largest size.
