Day 29 {31 Days} of Cup Cozies – Stocking Ornament

Day 29 of {31} Days of Cup Cozies Challenge – Stocking Ornament

This cozy embroidery design is actually a free-standing design, meaning you would hoop with water-soluble stabilizer, embroider the design, then soak in warm water to dissolve the stabilizer.  Dry the ornament flat on a towel, when dry you could string it through the top and place on a tree.  But I wanted to try it on a cozy and hoped it would work.  Knit fabric is way thicker than fabric or stabilizer so I was very pleased that it actually worked.  Yes, I realize it’s not Christmas yet, ha, ha!

I’m not going to offer this one for sale on Etsy because I don’t really care for the color combination (personally).  Maybe I will offer a giveaway on the stocking cozy later.  However I am going to offer a giveaway on Wednesday, the last day of the 31 Days of cup cozies challenge.  So please continue to read my blog so you don’t miss out on the giveaway, I will give you a hint…..it will be a fall cozy!  There is plenty of Fall season left.

I have been having problems with my old search engine so decided to try Google Chrome (With my sons encouragement).  The first thing I noticed were on this blog, photo placement issues……they are now gone! I was having trouble getting the pics to go where I wanted them to go.  To soon to tell what else might run smoother on my computer but it can only be an improvement : )

Happy knitting : )
