Blooming Christmas Stocking

I designed this Christmas stocking a few years ago for publication in Inspired Ideas. magazine. It was so exciting to be published. It has been a few years so I can now share the instructions and pattern here.lyndaspread

The magic behind the “blooming” is using 100% cotton fabrics and a very hot dryer as the last step.

Here is the back side of the Stocking.

Here is a close-up of what the “blooms” look like after washing and drying. It works best when the bottom layer color contrasts with the top layer color.
