"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Iron on Christmas Stocking

By: Nancy Billetdeaux for Kreinik

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.

Iron-on Christmas Stocking

Materials:

  • Iron-on 1/8” Ribbon in 6130 Red, 6225 Gold, 6350 Green
  • 3” x 4” Kreinik Teflon Press Cloth
  • Mini iron or household iron
  • 4 1/2” X 4 1/2” white print fabric
  • Sequins (small) 6 red, 4 green, 4 gold
  • Sewing machine
  • White all-purpose thread
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Fabric glue
  • Template

Steps:

  1. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
     
  2. Trace and cut out the stocking template. Place template onto doubled white print fabric and cut out.
     
  3. Referring to template for placement, iron the 1/8’ Ribbon; lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the Teflon press cloth, and press for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue in this way, working the design in sections. Refer to the photo for color location.
     
  4. Pin stocking right sides together and sew around stocking, leaving top open, using a 1/4” seam allowance. Turn under 3/8” to inside of stocking and stitch around top of stocking 1/4” from edge.
     
  5. Cut a piece of 1/8” red Iron-on Ribbon 8 1/2” long, and fold in half. Iron the raw ends to inside of stocking (always use your Teflon press cloth).
     
  6. Glue sequins to stocking using fabric glue; refer to photo for color and placement.
