Make It : Tartan Stocking

Posted by

For our 'Customs made' story in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living, we interpreted the British Isles through Stockings. Felted sweaters and knit i cords sewn onto wool fabric became  stockings inspired by Aaran knit sweaters, and Tartan fabrics complete with fringe, tassel and pin represented Scottish Kilts. When looking for Tartan fabrics, I came across this company, which has every possible tartan you can imagine. I thought it would be so fun to find your family tartan and make Stockings for your entire family !? If you don't know if you have a family tartan, check on this website . And if you can't find one, you can always pretend, no !? Santa (or father Christmas) won't mind.
