Sew the Edges

For the burlap, line up the two pieces on top of each other and sew around the edge, leaving a 1/2" selvedge, the distance from the edge of fabric to where your needle sews. Sew around the sides and foot, but do not sew the top opening. For the muslin, fold down the top of the stocking pieces toward the outside of the stocking, and press lightly with an iron. Lay each piece on top of each other, folded sides out and sew them together leaving a 1" selvedge. Trim with scissors leaving about a 1/4" selvedge. Insert the muslin stocking into the burlap stocking; fix it to lay flat by putting your hand inside the muslin through to the bottom. The two pieces should fit nicely together. If not, sew the muslin piece a bit smaller and re-trim until it fits.
