Finding unique ideas for Christmas stockings can be a pain, especially when you want something easy. Blackwork with its timeless patterns is perfect for stockings. You can vary it in the colors you want, it creates a rich collection of patterns that can be embellished if you like or kept simple. It’s one of the few techniques that can be used for anyone, old or young, man or woman, boy or girl.
They are designs that richly reward you for the work you put into them.
These two stockings have 24 Blackwork patterns in them, but they have so much more. In the Ornament Stocking, above, you’ll develop your own design (it’s really easy) then adapt a dyeing technique to create light on dark areas without the expense of painted canvas. The result us stunning even though it can be done by any stitcher.
The Noel Stocking, below, has a more traditional feel and is based on a crazy quilt. Besides the striking traditional patterns, you’ll lear how to decorate seams with ribbon and stitching and how to embellish your stocking with ribbon flowers you buy instead of make.
The two projects in this ebook are among my favorites. I love to hang them every year.
