I came across this chart one day and instantly loved them. What’s not to love about tiny stockings to use as ornaments, especially when they are done sampler style. They are old charts from Lizzie Kate so I had to do some hunting to see if they were even still available since Lizzie Kate is no longer an in operation design company but I got lucky.
New stocking charts were release for a couple of years and then a random stocking in with some other smalls so I think I have the charts for all seven different stocking designs. I started and finished the first one this week – the Noel one – and have started on the one with the wreath. The charts each come with some little bead and button packets. On the stocking below, there are beads in the top sections to represent the berries. I put in a quick running stich to outline where the seam line should go when I finish it and I will use that as a general guide to make a plastic template for finishing.
I know I say it about nearly everything I stitch but this was really fun to stitch and very quick too.
These are so cute! Will you finish it like a real stocking?
Actually I’m thinking about doing them as a stocking shaped flat fold so they hang nicely.
Fun, quick, and cute. What more could one ask for?
What’s not to love? Very sweet find and beautiful stitching.
Those are going to be so cute!
