Who said stockings are just to hang by the fireplace waiting for the jolly man in the red suit to come and fill up?
Here are eight of my favorite projects using AccuQuilt’s GO! Santa Stocking.
Project #1: Wall Decor
Let’s talk wall décor. Using felt or creative memory foam would be the perfect way to let your kids or grandkids add to the family decor. I don’t know about you, but my all-time favorite Christmas decorations are those my kids made over the years.
Take a quick look at the GO! No Sew "Just For You" Stocking Wall Decor Pattern or the GO! No Sew Snowman Stocking Wall Decor Pattern. These patterns provide great inspiration, but don’t forget about other holiday-themed applique dies you may already own! The possibilities are endless.
Project #2: GO! Traditional
Now for something a bit more traditional! Pair the GO! Traditional Christmas Stockings Pattern with the GO! Carefree Alphabet. Of course, the red and white colors look amazing but think outside the box.
Besides creating the blocks suggested in the pattern, have a look through your orphan blocks and see if you have anything that will work!
Project #3: Create your own Fabric
First, it is a great way to scrap bust. Second, it’s like being your own fabric designer! Look at the GO! Crazy Quilt Stockings Pattern — it’s just amazing!
Project #4: Create Modern Stockings
If modern is your thing, look no further than the GO! Modern Stockings Pattern for the perfect addition to your decor.
Imagine using all sorts of different fabrics to match whatever your color scheme is.
Project #5: Winter-themed Stockings
Christmas in Minnesota is cold and these GO! Winter Blue Stockings are the perfect seasonal pattern. Snowflakes and gingerbread dressed as snowmen—what could be cuter?!
Project #6: Customize your Pattern
Want to play with colors? Visit GO! Quilt and search for “Christmas Stocking.”
You will be able to select the pattern and play with color and fabric until you have everything just how you like. Then, simply download your custom instructions and you are ready to GO!
Project #7: Wall Decor
Here is another stocking your littles can help with. Have them cut stockings out from felt. Let your little helpers select designs they would like on their stocking.
Remember to put fusible on your felt before running through your cutter, peel the backing off, and let your helpers place the designs. Applique the design and then sew stockings wrong sides together.
Project #8: Wall Decor
Stockings aren’t just for Christmas! Have you ever thought of creating a stocking to put a special child’s Halloween or Easter candy in?
The GO! Halloween Medley Die and the GO! Spring Medley Die would be perfect to decorate those stockings. What about delivering flowers in a stocking to a neighbor for May Day? Possibly my favorite idea would be to create a gift for a sewing friend.
Use the applique pieces from the GO! Pincushion Die, add a bottle of wine, and some sewing notions. Could it get any better?
