I made only a couple of changes. I did sew mine on my machine. I like the idea of gluing it but I didn't want to have to wait for the glue to dry. (That's how patient I am!) :) I traced an existing stocking and used that as my "pattern". I also just used fabric I had on hand--as usual, my goal/challenge is to try to use only what I have on hand. So the stocking and one flower are made of burlap and the other two flowers are a pretty tan gingham.
