Somehow the mantel of Official Family Christmas Stocking maker was passed to me, and each year I curse all lettering and small decorative pieces I have to cut out from felt.

Usually I print out a template of the letter/shape and clumsily pin it to the felt, then fumble to cut out around the piece and pins. What a pain in the stocking.

But this year I had the glue stick out for another project so I applied it to the back of my paper pattern pieces, stuck it the felt and started cutting. Magic! Stays in place while it needs to, peels right off w/out damage or residue when you're done.

Hooray glue stick!
