Easy & Colorful Christmas Stocking

Hey there, it's Sara. Today I'll show you how you can use different textures of heat transfer vinyl to decorate a Christmas stocking. On this tutorial I have used flock, Glitter, gold foil and smooth vinyl.

What you need:
Colored flock heat transfer vinyl
Colored glitter heat transfer vinyl
Colored smooth heat transfer vinyl
Gold foil heat transfer vinyl
Plain stocking
Pom pom ribbon
Silhouette Cameo/Portrait/Curio
PEPPERMINT  Design (ID #52688)
LW SPLENDID FONT Font ( ID #70505)

Start with using white smooth heat transfer vinyl or white flock heat transfer vinyl, make a a rectangular to cover the top part of your stocking, where you will have the child's name later on.

Cut and heat press on to your stocking.

Using the LW SPLENDID font, write the child's name. Resize it to fit inside the rectangular shape and in the end mirror the name.

Cut and heat press on top of the white heat transfer vinyl.

Next step will be to decorate the rest of the stocking with the Peppermint shape, create different sizes of it and duplicate it twice, enough to scatter them around your stocking filler.  Cut them in  the different heat transfer material and colors you have.

In the end place them in different places on your stocking filler and heat press them on.

Now you can sew the border of the white vinyl with the pom pom ribbon.
End result, a colorful and unique stocking filler, that both adults and children would love!
