Lisa Somerville's Joy Stocking
Our design team, has us adding more things to our holiday to-do list and it just keeps getting bigger! Today, we have an awesome ornament by the talented Lisa Somerville, that we are dying to replicate! Here is how she did it:
Heat and Bond onto your printed and Muslin fabrics.
eCraft Pro Software, cut tag image from Sticky Back Canvas, stamp Pink by
Design sentiment in Black Archival, let dry.
Add Gold Stickles to snowflake, set aside.
SCAL software; create 1” x 1” squares (I added 30 squares for my project). Cut squares from printed fabric.
Heat and Bond Backing and iron squares onto Muslin fabric to form a patchwork
pattern. Continue doing this until you
have enough squares that are a bit larger than the design you are going to
cut. Set aside.
Open SCAL software, open stocking image. I removed some of the nodes from my image to
enable it to cut a bit faster. To remove
the nodes simple hit Path>Union>Shape Tool>Backspace.
Then copy and mirror your image.
Insert patchwork/muslin piece into your eCraft with the Heat and
Bond side facing up, cut your stockings.
Remove from machine, set aside.
Cut TWO additional stockings from Muslin.
Cut the top off your patchwork stockings; cut one pair of the
muslin stockings as shown.
Iron patchwork stocking to larger muslin stocking; iron cut cuff
Flip stockings over; remove Heat and Bond paper, place cotton as
shown. Place stocking image on top of
cotton, lightly iron to help adhere, so that you can sew stockings
Sew Stockings with machine, or whip stitch.
Beautiful work! Thank you, Lisa!
