Iron on Christmas Stocking
This is a fun way to make a quick fabric ornament that looks like it was crazy quilted. You can take it a step further and make it a ‘signature’ ornaments – having family or friends sign their names in the sections of the design. The iron-on threads give you a quick decorative thread embellishment.
