The GO! Santa's Stocking (55854) is a DIY ("do-it-yourself") project die compatible with the GO!, GO! Big and Studio. If you're looking for holiday party decorations, season home decor or personalized gifts, this is the die for you! In minutes, you can cut a complete, standard sized stocking and cuff. Once sewn together, the stocking will be 10½" x 18½", which means appliqué shapes of three inches tall or smaller will fit perfectly on the cuff while appliqué shapes of four inches by six inches or smaller fit the stocking. Think: GO! Holiday Medley, GO! Sleigh & Snowflakes, GO! Holiday Accessories and any of our other GO! holiday and seasonal appliqué die shapes.
Included with your die is the GO! Modern Stockings Pattern (PQ11651). Get creative with your fabric too! Leather, faux fur, buffalo check, suede, flannel... As long as you mind your layers the GO! Santa Stocking will look great from your mantel, whatever style your home is in.
Speaking of seasonal appliqué, the GO! Gingerbread Cookie die (55862) is yet another addition to our cheery collection. Usually a rounded shape like this one is difficult to cut, but now you can cut up to four pre-fused appliqué shapes in one pass through any GO! fabric cutter and Studio (with adapter). Pair this die with the GO! Holiday Medley, GO! Sleigh & Snowflakes, GO! Holiday Accessories or GO! Schoolhouse (55344) for a sweet holiday sewing treat.
With each purchase of this die, you get the GO! Gingerbread Crossing Wall Hanging Pattern (PQ11657) and receive three free embroidery files (blanket, satin and motif), so that it's even easier to add this cute little cookie to stockings, home decorations and more.
Last but not least, the GO! Classic 2" Alphabet Uppercase Set (55559) is a versatile appliqué die you will be using to personalize projects for years to come. At two inches, these letters are the perfect size for adding monograms to the GO! Santa's Stocking, GO! Baby Bib and GO! Burp Cloth or creating seasonal or special occasion banners with GO! Pennants. Usually letters like these are a challenge to cut with scissors or rotary cutters, but with this die, you can easily add names or entire quotes to pillows, quilts, wall hangings and more - and quickly! Cut up to four pre-fused letters in one pass through a GO!, GO! Big or Studio with adapter.
