Simple Handmade Gifts with a Kit

Embroidery is one of the hobbies that I rarely share online.  If you have been wanting to give hand stitching a try or enjoy it as one of your hobbies, you are going to enjoy the new all-inclusive kits from Violet Studio. Today, I have a simple video tutorial showing you how to make the stocking plus two additional paper crafting projects you can create using the leftover items.

This stocking was created in collaboration with Scrapbook.com as a way to share some handmade holiday projects you can make. This Violet Studio kit comes with all the supplies you need to make the stocking including the thread organizer, needle, embroidery thread, decorative pom-poms, iron-on transfer designs, instructions, and a completed stocking. 

As you can see, this stocking is a well-built large gift holder that you can personalize using any of the iron-on images in your kit. I chose the holly and star designs, but there are also nutcracker images, trees, floral images, and others to choose from.

Even though I have a more advanced skill set, I chose to keep this project simple. I selected three stitches from the guide and used them to create the designs on my stocking.

Whether you are a novice or an advanced embroiderer, this kit is going to be one you enjoy. The guide recommends it as an advanced project, but if you keep the stitches simple, as I did, it will only take a few hours to complete.

When the stocking was complete, I decided to find a way to use up some of the leftover items. Using the iron-on images, thread, and some Voilet Studio paper, I created a Christmas card and tag.

For the card, I selected a tree design and used some leftover thread to stitch the image onto cardstock. I added a sentiment from the pattern pack then wrapped some leftover gold thread above the sentiment before adhering it to my card base.

The holly I used on the stocking, was used again to create a simple embroidered Christmas tag. I chose some pattern papers from the kit, cut out the tag images, and added the holly design.

Instead of stitching the berries, I chose to use Pops of Color. At the top of the tag, I tied some of the leftover trim and a bit of floss.

If you would like to learn how to create your own stocking, card, and tag, I have an instruction video for you to enjoy.

Embroidery and hand stitching aren’t for everyone, but it’s always fun to try something new. All-inclusive kits make projects like this much simpler to create – there is no need to shop for a list of products and not much is leftover to add to the craft room stash.

If you have any questions about these projects or the supplies listed above, please feel free to leave me a comment.
