need help with a stocking

Well since pink and chocolate are my fave colours right now for Annalise, I thought I'd make her stocking in chocolate and pink velour. Can you help me fine tune it though? Open to all suggestions as to what to do with the cuff. Those are all ribbons that I would sew on, and I'm going to knit a fringe for the cuff out of that pink yarn. Too weird for a Christmas stocking? Also, I think the velour might be a bit "limp". It won't hang nearly as stiff as the fleece stockings I have for everyone else.

Re: need help with a stocking

I think it would be very cute! Could you use iron on fleece or interfacing to make it stiffer? I don't have any outstanding ideas for putting it together, sorry! Maybe a crazy quilt look with the ribbons criscrossing the stocking? But I do want to see pics when you are done!!
