Place toe end of stocking inside the ball. Fill with filling so you can determine how much is needed. Knot off the stocking so that a ball of the correct size is formed. Remove stocking from inside the ball. Turn the stocking back over the ball so that it is double. Tie again. Repeat until there is no stocking left (typically 4-5 times). This process results in many layers of stocking holding the filling. Put the stocking with the filling inside the ball.
