Make your own punch needle Christmas stocking
Re-ignite those feelings of nostalgia with your very own handmade punch needle stocking. I used to desperately try to stay awake to see Father Christmas (ahem) placing the stocking on the end of my bed...I never quite made it! Those pesky parents were obviously able to outdo seven year old me.
The stockings of my childhood came out year after year and made little reappearances throughout adulthood. My sister and I with matching red and white stockings lovingly made by our mum.
Now you can make your own Christmas stocking, but make it punch needle and Scandi. Not a massive fan of the traditional Christmas colours, I've gone for two different more muted colourways of Dark Grey or Biscuit with a wintery White. Spend a cosy, autumnal afternoon making your own Christmas stocking to hang on the mantlepiece with pride and bring out year after year. A handmade heirloom to pass on to future generations.
The punch needle kit teaches you how to stretch your fabric across the frame, use a punch needle, create punch needle loops, re-position your work on the frame, create longer punch needle loops and sew up your stocking.
