From Glorious June. The only change I made on this one is that I stitched it on lighter colored linen.
A closer look at the beaded hanger. I use thirteen of these beads (4mm) along with some clear seed beads. I love the sparkle.
I’ve been asked a few questions about the stockings so I’ll answer them here.
1. Do I line the stockings? I do not line the stockings. I use the fusible interfacing just as the directions suggest. I’m not sure if the idea is to sew these shut across the top as well, I’ve left them open.
2. What colors did I use for Bountiful Stars (yesterday’s stocking)? Weeks Dye Works – Peach Fuzz & Dove, GAST – Grape Arbor, Cornhusk, Highland Heather.
3. Do I use a sewing machine and are they hard to make? These are sewn completely by hand and are not hard to finish. The directions provided with the designs are very good; I’ve posted a few other hints here.
If I can find time this weekend, I hope to make a garden decoration from something Jerry came across while cleaning the garage last weekend. It will have some sparkle too but it’s an outdoor project and it is supposed to be cool and wet this weekend so we shall see.
