E-PATTERN- WW2 Buckle Boot Felt Stocking Pattern- WWII Christmas Craft
Inspired by the WW2 U.S. Army M1943 Double Buckle Boot, our stocking pattern is a whimsical take on the real thing. This boot makes a great gift for the WW2 re-enactor, history buff, veteran, or just about anyone!
We suggest using real wool felt in tan or brown for your stocking and black wool felt for your buckles and sole/heel. Comparing wool and acrylic felt, wool is much easier to work with, better looking, and more accurate for a vintage theme. Use your creativity to embellish this stocking with whimsical trims or embroidery.
You can even make it if you don't own a sewing machine! You can sew the outside of the stocking and the cuff by hand or by using blanket embroidery stitches. Or simply whip it together on your sewing machine for a quick holiday project!

HOW TO USE E-PATTERNS
Most patterns come as both A4/US LETTER and A0 size. You will need ADOBE READER, a free program, to print your e-pattern.
For A4/US LETTER paper:
Open the "READ-ME-FIRST" File for instructions on printing and piecing your pattern. Print the PDF file on your home printer, cut off on the lines given, and tape them together. Then you cut and use your pattern just as you would a normal home sewing pattern.
For A0 size:
This is sent away to a copyshop and printed on big sheets for you. We print A0 pattern sheets at great prices at Pattern Printing Company
No returns or exchanges are accepted. Please be sure of your pattern size and type of product, either physical or digital, before purchasing.
All of our patterns are carefully researched and based on either public domain materials or our own creations. Lauren applies her decades worth of practical application of historical fashion and technical skills when making these patterns, and often supplies watch points for making. External helps are available on Wearing History on YouTube and on Wearing History Blog to help you learn to sew history.
