I've seen a gazillion ideas out on the world wide web of ways to creatively wrap a gift card or money for the holidays and one of them was to make a miniature stocking. I didn't follow a pattern here, as I sort of prefer to 'wing' it myself, but here is a brief photo tutorial on how this particular one was made. The fantastic Christmas image seen here is from Nicecrane Designs, called So Adorable Christmas and available in a set from Ignacio's store. I chose to leave the image in black and white and accent colors around it.
Using the freezer paper transfer method, I've printed image out onto fabric.
Positioning image to far right to give ample room for front and back of stocking.
Fold material in half and hand draw stocking shape around image.
Cut material in half
Pin pieces together to cut out shape.
Form the hem and attach lace for front of stocking.
Sewn hem on front and back of stocking along with a fabric handle.
Both sides sewn together and now to decorate and attach the hanging handle.

Hugs n' Happy Crafting...

Awwww...this is so cute!. I've been good this year too, Santa!.
When do you have time to go cook for your husband! Really neat stocking Lisa - nice homespun feel. I love that image so much I went and bought one. You collect all this cheap or free stuff and make gorgeous creations and I continue to go wherever you send me and buy!!!!
Such a gorgeous stocking, Lisa!! Love it. So beautifully created. We just returned from vacation, we were delayed in leaving as our son had a heart attack the day before his son's wedding, so needless to say things have been in a turmoil around here. We take the month of September each year and go to the U.S.just to get away for a bit. Spent most of my time shopping for jewelry supplies as I love to design and create jewelry so I should have a busy Canadian winter. Have loved seeing all your beautiful work at Nicecrane. ttys.

THAT is super cool! Love that transfer method. It is surprisingly easy and turns out so nicely! Love his images too!
LOVE this Santa stocking and the pretty lace!
This is so wonderful!! Anyone else would have bought one of the red and white felt ones from the bargain store, but I gotta say, I would much rather have this one!! The crochet/knit embellishments are fabulous and I love the vintage Santa image! If I'm good, do ya think Santa will bring me one?! wink,wink!
