Victoria from Cuddle Monster Crafts will be on hand to guide anyone less experienced through applying appliqué designs to your stocking using basic embroidery stitches (back stitch, chain stitch, blanket stitch and a laisy Daisy) on thick cream vintage woollen fabric. Then finishing your vintage style stocking design with felt, buttons and ribbon. More experienced sewers will enjoy getting creative with the large collection of threads, buttons and fabric that Victoria will be bringing along for you to use.

The cost of the workshop covers all materials. Height of stocking is approx 14” and overall width is 11”. Please note that although some photos show red the base fabric will be cream.
