Merry Christmas everyone! I just thought you might like to see my finished stocking. The pattern is a free download from Sunny day Supplies who hold a stocking SAL every year – although I was a little too late with this one.
So here was where I was up to last week….
I had patchworked 2″ squares together using the interfacing method which I find allows me to be more accurate when matching up smaller pieces of material. It also means that you can sew whole rows of squares together rather than individual pieces. All that was left to do, before I could sew everything together, was to decorate the top half of the stocking. I used a mini-Dresden on both the back and front of the stocking and then embroidered around these in a sparkly thread. I am quite pleased with the result and may try making a few more next year.
Happy stitching and have a wonderful stitchy Christmas!
