It seems like the new Ikea TIDNY fabric, AKA coloring book fabric, is all the rage these days. Sadly, there's no Ikea near me, and there isn't one near our guest blogger from Canada either, but necessity is the mother of invention, so Jeanine came up with an awesome solution! Check out her cute DIY Coloring (or colouring as everyone else in the world spells it!) Book Stockings.
- transfer paper
- twill or light canvas to cut at least one side of your stocking out of (I used twill, but I had to be much more careful with my pen lingering in one spot than I would have been had I been able to find a light canvas)
- a colouring page printed off the good old internet or from a colouring book
- a regular pencil
- a black fabric marker
Now you will trace over the image (or parts of) that you would like transferred to the stocking. The harder you press the pencil when you trace the darker the transfer will be. As you can see (poorly) below the transfer can get quite light if you don't keep a good pressure on your pencil.
Now go over your traced lines with your black fabric pen. If you discover there are some things you would like to skip, that is ok, this transfer stuff comes right out !
Now sew the outers and linings together only leaving the hole at the top open for both the outer and "lining".
