The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Project: Silk Stocking Christmas Tree Ornament Tutorial

To get a copy of our full issue please visit our site



You will need:
Hand painted silk or fancy fabrics of your
choice
Needle and thread or sewing machine
Iron on interfacing
Ribbon for hanging
Scissors
Gold iron fix outliner for decoration (or
beads / buttons / sequins)

Step 1. Choose your fabric, with a
small enough pattern that it will look
good on the stocking. Choose a
contrasting or coordinating piece for
the top. You could also make a piece
of patchwork.







Step 2. Select a piece big enough
to make two stocking pieces, and
back it with iron-on interfacing. This
makes it more rigid and helps it to
be a more robust tree ornament.
(The interfacing is optional if you are using heavy / upholstery fabric.)








Step 3. Cut out two stockings,
leaving room around them for
seams. Remember you need one
facing each way, so you may want
to do this by folding your fabric in
half.
