Need some help with a finish

OK all you fabulous finishers---does anyone have instructions for finishing a Shepards Bush stocking?  Mine is stitched--I have the backing and liner fabric but wonder if there is a certain way to go about
connecting all the pieces (sound like a non-sewer question?!)

may your fingers be flying...Peg


  1. Have a look here:

    I guess you could apply the same rules to yours?

  2. If it were me I would probably ask someone else to finish it off. Maybe your LNS has a finishing service? :) After all that beautiful stitching I would hate to mess it up at the final stage. LOL

  3. Shepherd's Bush has finishing instructions (pdf). I also used instructions from cross stitch corner, but their website is gone! The SB instructions are best used in conjunction with another set. Good luck.
