Mini Stitch Guide: 12 Days Stocking

12 Days Stocking

A stocking is one of the most sentimental projects you can stitch. They are a focal point of the holiday season, considered family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation. When designing this large project, I didn't want it to be boring - I wanted to make sure it would be enjoyable to stitch from start to finish. You will notice that this project requires minimal background stitching, lots of fun colors, and plenty of opportunity for decorative stitches. AND it's on 13 mesh, meaning the holes on the canvas are bigger and it is quicker to stitch.

The fibers listed below are in the same color palette I used for the other pieces of my holiday collection, so everything looks cohesive when it comes time to decorate for the holidays :)
