1. Cut fabric into 10-inch cone shape. The easiest way to do this is to simply fold the fabric's corner in half and cut out.

2. Fold the fabric in half and pin the open side together. Make sure that you like the size of the stocking and shape of the cone, if not, make changes to refine the size or shape.

3. Cut a 10-inch long piece of copper dupioni silk. To create a finished look, fold rough edges of the silk to the middle and place no-sew tape in each corner. Iron fabric, ensuring that none of the no-sew tape is visible and fabric edges are straight.
