JBW's Red Stocking Collection

JBW's Red Stocking Collection

This week's project comes from JBW's Red Stocking card-sized chart, which actually has 3 different little stocking designs for you to choose from - I went with the Scandinavian one, on the right.

Project Materials:

Chart: JBW's Red Stocking Collection, available from your favorite needlework store

Fabric: 32 count antique white with silver sparkles evenweave from Fabric Flair, available in the StitchyBox shop and from your favorite needlework store

Thread: Spiked Punch, limited edition GAST cotton floss only available in the StitchyBox store

Project Notes:

This is a great little chart that can obviously be used with just about any thread/fabric combination. I screwed up on the right reindeer's right-most leg (should be 2 stitches, not three), but I can either compesate for it by expanding out that bottom section a bit more, or by masking it when I finish the little guy. 


As always, I'd love to see what you are working on this week - your WIPs, your finishes, and your UFOs. Leave us a comment below with a link or a photo so we can take a peek :)

Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Project Idea: Christmas Wreath (Stitch It Up chart #1)

Each week we share a project stitched with products from our most recent StitchyBox shipment, to help spark your creativity and get you stitching! Want to see your own project featured here, and receive a free StitchyBox shipment to boot? Check out our Project Model Stitcher program!


This week's project idea is Christmas Wreath, the very first chart from our Stitch It Up add-on subscription, designed by Lindsay Lane Designs:

The Stitch It Up charts are designed to go along with items found in each StitchyBox shipment, but you could always easily pull threads and fabric from your stash to stitch this little chart up. Our two models (above) give you some ideas for personalization - on the blue model (left), I replaced the stitched ribbon in the wreath with a small bow made of actual silk ribbon from the Royal Academy shipment, and "stitched" the snowflakes with beads. On the white model, I added a Hillcreek handdyed button (from our Buttoned Up add-on subscription) and stitched the snowflakes in gold kreink metallic thread, so they wouldn't disappear against the white fabric. 

Christmas Wreath is available in the shop, along with lots of the supplies we used to stitch these models
