With a few scraps of felt and an hour and a half, you'll have a wonderful little stocking to hang on your tree or to tuck a treat in. Gift cards and tickets, Godiva Chocolates or jewelry would all travel well in this little stocking. Use the applique pattern included or create your own. Have you children design their own applique to put on the stocking. Older children can sew it on, while younger children will be able to glue on a design. Directions for the Flower Mini Christmas Stocking can now be found in the FREE Pattern Section. Enjoy!
The Directions and Pattern for the Star Mini Christmas Stocking are now up in the FREE Pattern section. I will have the Flower Mini Christmas Stocking up tomorrow. The uses for these little stockings are endless! I would like to thank Crafting Club member, Tinasquirrel, for her suggestion of using them to tuck gift cards in. They are the perfect size! Add a loop to the stocking and after bearing the gift, they can be used on the tree for years to come. Two gifts in one! Gotta love a multifunctional gift!
I wanted to share a pattern for a couple of very cute mini Christmas stockings. When you put a loop on them, they make wonderful ornaments or gift toppers. Leave the loops off, stuff with silverware or a napkin, and they add a festive touch to your holiday table. They can also be used to fill with small gifts and treats. A wonderful little ornament to bring to a neighborhood ornament exchange.
I am including patterns for 2 different stockings; the star and the flower, but use your own imagination to come up with wonderful designs. I loved including some of my vintage buttons on the star stocking. Patterns will be up tomorrow in the FREE Pattern section. Check back then if you're interested in the directions and patterns! Enjoy!
Remember those Dragon Scarves I mentioned awhile ago as Christmas gifts for my nephews? Well, I finally finished them this evening... along with matching hats and mittens so I can check this project off my list! These make my first fully completed Christmas gifts. Now to wrap them and ship them off.
I hope everyone else is making lots of progress on those holiday lists. Anyone else in the middle of a big Christmas project? Next on my list is a felted wool bowl.
Okay, NOT a typical WFA entry, BUT I saw this and was fascinated! And it's a Sunday, and we normally don't blog on the weekends, so this is just a extra!
I am not a machine knitter...I need needles in my hands. But today Tim shared this video with me and the creativity blew me away. Oh, the things people can do with a handful of talent and lots of time! Enjoy!
An animated music video composed entirely of machine-knitted frames. The music is by the Montreal band Tricot Machine (which translates to ‘knitting machine’).
