All Stitched Up

Pin It

I am by no means a sewer, in fact the only thing I have sewed in the last 20 years is a teddy bear, so I am quite pleased with my completed stocking!

I just love Stampin’ Up!s new fabric range.  The pattern for this stocking comes with the Deck the Halls Fabric Pack.  It was so simple & is even fully lined.  I do need to put one more brad on the band at the top as I ran out.  I did change a couple of things from the original pattern.  I layered Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon under the Victoria Lace Crochet Trim

For the heal & toe of the stocking, The 2 different fabrics are cut out on the Big Shot using the Top Note Die.  I thought I might have a bit of trouble sewing around those edges so before I cut them out, I ironed some of the Big Shot Adhesive Roll onto the back of each piece of fabric & then ironed them onto the stocking.  I must say the adhesive roll is fantastic!  It sticks way better than any other ones I have tried & certainly makes crafting easier.


Now I just have to hope that Santa has lots of goodies to fill it up for me!

Happy Stamping

Stocking Spectacular

Pin It


What an awesome special we have for this month!  Host a workshop with a minimum of $500 sales & not only will you be able to choose at least $70 in Free Product, but you will also receive the Build-a-Stocking bundle for Free!

Click on the Picture below to see the stamp set & punch.  You can choose either clear or wood mount.  The bundle is valued at over $100!


Now, you may be thinking, very nice, but what do I do with it for the rest of the year?  The answer is use your imagination.  I had a little play last night & came up with the following cards.


This was my first attempt using the Build-a-Stocking set to make a baby card.  I thought the booties looked a bit long so I have shortened them for the baby boy card.


Now for a bit more fun – I love punch art & I had seen a few cards where the stocking punch has been used to use a hobby horse.  I haven’t tried that yet, but here is what I came up with last night.


Off to play again now.

Happy Stamping
