Hey Lovelies! It’s day 12 of Blogmas 2018. And that means, we are half way through! Are you happy it’s going so fast, or do you want it to slow down?! For today’s DIY I wanted to make a stocking, even tho it doesn’t have those Christmassy colors, I think you will still like it. I actually wanted to do a charmander one, but I had no orange felt, so a Pikachu Stocking it is! But ofcourse you can change it to any pokemon you want! Have fun!
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ Felt in the colors White, Yellow, Red andBlack.
♥ Sewing thread in matching colors to the felt.
♥ Sewing Needle.
♥ Trick Marker or anything else where you cancopy the pattern with onto your felt.
♥ Fabric Glue. (optional)
♥ Acryllic Paint in White. (optional)
♥ 15cm of white yarn.
First off all, download the pattern HERE! And print it out (or draw it from your screen). The good thing is, you can make it as big as you want! Then cut out all the pieces. On every piece is stated how many times you need to cut it out of felt.
Cut part A out of Yellow Felt, Part B and F out of White felt. Part C out of Red felt. Part D, E and the mouth out of Black felt. Optional: the white dot in the eye, you can either paint it on or cut it out of white felt.
Sew parts B to parts A with a running stitch, only the part that’s in the middle of the sock.
Glue or sew on the face of Pikachu, make sure you don’t forget the white dots in the eyes, with either paint or felt. The circles for his cheeks I trimmed down the edge.
Now it’s time to sew parts a together with a Blanket stitch. All around.
When you’ve done that, it’s time to glue or sew on part F to the sock. I placed it about half way. (see the pic) But later I thought it would look better to fold in 1 cm from the top. Its best to do that first, and then glue/sew it to the sock.
Last but not least, tie a knot in both end together in the piece of yarn, so you’ll get a loop. And glue this to the stocking.
And it’s done! See, you can make many variations on this! Go wild, get creative! Have fun! And don’t forget to share with #DelinleaBlogmas2018DIY or #DelinleaDIY.
