accuquilt stocking die

My new (current) favorite die is the AccuQuilt GO! Santa Stocking Die and I have stockings coming out my ears and I have not finished making them. The November Island Batik Ambassador challenge was…you guessed it, stockings.

GO! Snowflake Die (above) is just one of the snowflakes available from AccuQuilt.

Then I decided to make a couple stockings for my grandson’s.

The GO! Sleigh & Snowflakes Die includes 2 different snowflakes.

  1. The stockings are all really cute, and the sugar cookie recipe makes my mouth water. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Denise your stockings are beautiful. The embroidery is just the perfect embellishment. I’m sure the grands will be impressed. Thank you for sharing your sugar cookie recipe. Not rolling might actually mean I’ll make them ?

  3. Stockings and sugar cookies, does it get anymore Christmassy than that? NOPE! Love the personalized stockings. So good. Thank you for the recipe too!

  4. Love your projects. A non-rolled sugar cookie!!??? That’s genius. Thank you so much for the recipe. I am also so impressed that you know how to offer it in a separate PDF…bonus points for that!

  5. Hi Denise! This is exactly how we always made our sugar cookies. And then decorated them like ornaments or anything else that met our fancy. Thanks for sharing the recipe. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. The stockings are great! I do love embroidering on my machine….like you. I don’t do enough but I have a few projects coming up. Love sugar cookies…and now I want some. I’ll be starved by the time I get through everyone’s blogs this week.

    1. Lol, me too on the starved. There are so many projects I want to make using the embroidery machine, I hope to get them all done one day.

  7. I love a recipe that doesn’t have to be rolled out! Thanks for that. It looks pretty simple. Your stockings are all wonderful. How much fun to personalize them.

    1. It was really easy to prep to add the embroidery stitching. I used a sticky stabilizer for the names and just a fusible fleece for the shapes.

  8. If I had that stocking die I would have them coming out of my ears, too. I thought about getting that one, but never did. You made me rethink not getting it. Those stockings are beautiful! I love my embroidery machine but don’t use it as often as I’d like to. Thank you for the Christmas inspiration and for the sugar cookie recipe, too!

    1. Thank you and thank you for organizing the hop. I really do love the die and was able to make the 2 stockings with names in about an hour and a half.

  9. Adorable Christmas Stockings. I don’t have the stocking die, but I think I need that snowflake one. Thanks for sharing!

    1. There are two or three dies with snowflakes and the embroidery file makes stitching them down a breeze.

  10. Your stocking are hung and your cookies are all ready for Santa. It’s going to be a fabulous Christmas at your house!
    Merry Christmas!

  11. I love Christmas Stockings. Yours are so sweet. I make a stocking for each grand for their first Christmas so you know I love them. Embroidery machines are the best, aren’t they? Sugar Cookies and Christmas go together so well and yours looks wonderful.

    1. Now if I could come up with something I could make each year for them on my E machine Thank you for stopping by.

  12. Fun stockings! How nice that you have a machine that can embroider the names (I would have to hand embroider or do appliqué, since I don’t have an embroidery machine). Everything looks so festive!
