Christmas Stocking
by Natalie Hackett

Kurepunch Small - Holly
Kurepunch Medium - Angel
ZIG Fabricolor Opaque - Gold
ZIG Fabricolor Twin - Red
 ZIG Fabricolor Twin - Green
Canvas Stocking

1  Using a red ZIG Fabricolor Twin, colour the toe, heel and top of the stocking.

 2   With a gold ZIG Fabricolor Opaque stitch around the edge of the stocking 

 3 Using the gold fabricolor again write a Christmas slogan on the top, I cheated and used a template to write "Noel"

4  Finally create a stencil using the Kurepunch on card or heavy paper. I used the  Medium Angel Kurepunch for the top design....

...and the
Small Holly Kurepunch although there are many Christmas alternatives such as candles and snowflakes! 

Thanks Nat! 

We've got more staff tutorials coming up next week....
