I am so excited that SRM Stickers is now offering these amazing Burlap Stockings. Now that we have a new puppy I knew this would be the perfect time to make him official with a stocking for Christmas. Every dog needs a stocking full of toys and treats.

Today I am playing with:

 I did a little stitching to to add the lace to the stocking. I think the glue would leave a glossy look and I did not want that seam to show. I also used glossy accents to adhere the sequins to the lace. Since the sequins goes right over the glossy accents I was not worried about it showing through. I would recommend putting a scrap piece of paper inside the stocking just incase the glue leaks through. This will keep the stocking from gluing together.

Next I used Amy Tangerines stitching stencils and a sharpie to make the dots so I could stitch Sammy's name using the Twinery Twine: Gold Shimmer. This was very easy to do and the pen marks do not show because you are stitching right over them.
