It's Christmas In July!!!!!! I am so excited to share a new tutorial I have been working on. These have been on the "to do" list for about 3 years now and I think they were totally worth the wait :) So without further ado . . . Let me introduce my latest Riley Blake Design Team Tutorial . . . Simply Modern Monochromatic Stockings!!!
I had the idea to make monochromatic stocking a while back and have just been waiting for the right basics to come along. When I saw some of Riley Blakes New Basics, I knew it was the perfect fit!!
I used Medium Damask Reversed for the stocking, Houndstooth for the lining, and Swiss Dots for the cuff. Don't you just love all of the colors together ;) And the kids had so much fun browsing through all of the different color options and picking their favorite, which makes their stocking all the more special to them :)
These stockings are very generously sized. Not to big, but for sure large enough to stuff a lot of goodies in ;) And they really are so very easy to make. You could easily put one together in an hour. (and since it is July, you have lots of hours :) And I have instructions for embroidering or appliqueing the name, so if you don't have access to embroidery, there us another option ;)
Eeekk!!! I can't get over how much I love seeing each stocking match the next but just in a different color. I think this is going to be such a fun fun way to add some pop to my traditional Christmas colored decorations :)
So, do you want to make some Simply Modern Monochromatic Stockings?? Just click on over to Riley Blake Designs to see the free step-by-step tutorial :) Just be sure to turn on the Christmas tunes while working on them. I had so much fun the last few weeks singing along with Bing :)
I hope you enjoy the tutorial and if you make your own Simply Modern Monochromatic Stockings I would love to see them!!! You can add them to my Flickr Group here ;) Make 1, Make 2, Make any number you like. Once you start, there is always another color you will want to play with :)
Have a Happy (and Merry) Quilting Day!!
