I used a 30 cm blue zipper and inserted it at the leg side opening. I attempted to machine sew the zipper, but I will be honest my first attempt did nearly end in disaster. So ended up attaching the zipper by hand ( at least I know with MY stitching that zipper will not come undone, lol )
- Sew leg closed and use opening at cuff to insert toys.
- Add buttons and button loops
The reason I opted for using the side opening is because of the balls. They do get misshapen when pushed into the stocking, there is no avoiding it, unless you are extremely patient.
If you did what I did – just make another star and attach it to the other side 🙂
