Handmade Christmas stocking



My passion is stamping, so I decided to use a stamp to create a Christmas stocking. I cut two pieces of calico fabric and then using a woodware Christmas tree stamp and Versafine ink, stamped the image randomly over the fabric. Then used alcohol markers to colour the images, which worked really well. Making up the stocking was easy, lots of tutorials on the internet. Really enjoyed making my own pattern fabric, it's just like making your own pattern paper (which I love doing). This is my fifth stocking and will be my last for this year. 

Thanks for the visit and I have not a resolution with my Create and Craft order as yet. So if you are buying from them be very careful.

Update: finally got a refund from Create and Craft!
