A few weeks ago, I came across this PB Teen Christmas Stocking...
I loved the look of it and wanted to recreate my own version. Lucky for me, Bloomerie Fabrics had sent me a bit of Koi fabric and I knew it was perfect for this project!
I used Pennants Waving in Ivory for the cuff and lining of the stocking and The Way of the Flowers for the Peace sign applique and back of the stocking.
I am not much of an artist, but I tried my very hardest to draw a peace sign with a fabric marker on my fabric and then cut it out and applied a heavy fusible interfacing to give the fabric a bit more stiffness and then just raw edge appliqued it onto my stocking with pearl cotton (hand stitched).
I used some wool blend felt for the letter applique on the base of the stocking. I freehanded the letters (inspired by the original stocking) and glued them to the stocking with fabric glue and then hand stitched around the edges with pearl cotton. I have never really worked with felt but I am a huge fan of it! I can't wait to use it in another project! The texture is really awesome!
I used a layer of batting in between the outer layer and lining of the stocking. Then I used a bit of mini pom pom around the bottom of the cuff. Overall I am really happy with how it turned out! Can't wait to send it to my little sis for Christmas!
