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.
