Christmas Stocking

Sorry I have been MIA for the last several months. I have had so much going on I haven't had time to share it with any of you. Seeing as Christmas is just over a week away I thought I would share this awesome stocking I made as part of the Crafter's Companion Threaders Design team.

This stocking kit was offered on HSN by Threaders for the past few crafting days. It is awesome because the kit it came in had the batting as well as 2 front and 2 back pieces. We were supposed to just sew this stocking but I went crazy embellishing it. I remember my great grandma always made us the gorgeous elaborate stockings at Christmas time and I channeled her a little. 

From this close up you can see that I used a variety of fibers including rick rack and also lace. I simply sewed the lace onto the stocking. I also used a variety of rhinestones and faux pearls. I used E6000 to adhere the embellishments to the stocking. I will be posting more sewing stuff as well as coloring stuff in the near future.
