I have 18 fun stocking ideas that all have Heat transfer vinyl on them! But first…let me show you mine!

(I made a few! Ha!) diy burlap stocking

But this burlap one is my favorite at the moment! I’m loving flannel and seem to want to put it on everything!

I layered the burlap with backing…so two pieces of white…2 pieces of burlap and sew around (using an old stocking as a guide)

diy a stocking cut notches on all the edges to it lays smoother when you turn it ride side out! cut notches

then sewed the edge to help it lie more flat!  sew around edge

I added the flannel to the top (with my hot glue gun!)

and then cut some heat transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. For heat transfer you actually cut it on the backside (so you flip your image) and then peel away the part that isn’t your design. peel away negative space

This leaves a clear plastic sheet over your vinyl! Lay it down on your project and press it with an iron on that plastic sheet (about 15 seconds medium heat…and PRESS)

Then peel up that plastic sheet! peel up carrier sheet

Burlap is porous…so vinyl adheres but it’s not super strong! So I would not recomend using it on something that will see a lot of wear and tear! Since this stocking is purely decorative it works fine! pretty burlap diy stocking with vinyl

oh…and The font is men in blue  joy stocking with expressions vinyl

I also made  some stockings for my family….all the green is smooth heat transfer vinyl (except the pom poms and ric rac!)
