ScanNCut Christmas Decorations
Download the free Christmas themed ScanNCut designs to style them with some festive themed sayings.
We have used the John Deer’s Ultimate Stash Christmas Letters to decorate the Stocking fold. You can purchase a Ladybug Club subscription to the Ultimate Stash allowing you to choose from over 25,000 quality embroidery designs, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have downloaded and resized our ‘J’ letter to be 5cm x 5cm, using Embrilliance digitizing software.
Quilt your Stocking
You can also cut your fabric into 3″ x 15″ strips and stitch them together. Once you have a 15″ x 15″ quilted block you can iron this flat and then use as your standard fabric piece for the stocking front and back.
