I have been wanting to make something special for the gals in Book Club. Every year I think I will have time to create something and, every year, time gets away from me. Many of the women bring a little lovely for the rest at our December meeting and this is what I am bringing this year. I plan on filling them will some beautiful candies from a local candy shop.
These were easy to make with Helmar's adhesives which I have taken to using almost exclusively since I did a reveal with some of them at A Cherry on Top. These little stockings are no sew except for the hangers which only required a stitch or two. These three are made from specialty papers high in fiber content so I glued the two halves together with the fabric glue. I used the Liquid Glue dots and the Gemstone Glue to adhere beads and pearls and some of the flowers. The fabric glue also came in handy for the ribbons, lace and trims.
These would also make lovely gift card holders or for tucking silverware into for a fancy dinner party over the holidays. Each one took about 45 min. to make once I had the pattern drawn. Three down and nine to go...wish me luck!
What are you making this holiday season?
