A week or so ago I ran a workshop for Crazy Quilted Stockings.
I LOVE the Crazy Quilting technique, used with a sewing machine it is such a pleasing thing to do and surprisingly easy.
I originally made the stocking for the Hobbycraft Blog a little while ago, so thought it would be a good one to run out as a workshop too.
Three lovely ladies came along, they chose the Fat Quarter packs that they wanted to use and we got to work. Cutting, snipping, sewing, ironing, cutting, snipping, sewing, ironing..... it's a very repetitive craft :)
I was so absorbed in stocking making that I forgot to get any action shots, but here are the finished stockings in all their glory.
Two ladies chose the same colour schemes, while another went for something a little different.
I, myself, made a sample one, but it is not yet finished so you will have to wait to see that one :) Let's just say, it is very bright colourful and funky, not traditional at all.
Thanks for coming ladies, if you are reading, it was a blast, and you did fabulously.
Don't forget if you fancy making one yourself you can find my tutorial over on the Hobbycraft Blog. (click on the link :) )
