May Arts Ribbon - Mini Stocking

Sometimes you just have to work outside your box to get some fresh ideas.  I decided to enter May Arts ribbon contest this month (they have a monthly contest) with something other than a card. I made this stocking last night after I aged bright red ribbon with a Copic marker.  The red plaid elastic ruffle ribbon worked well going around the top of the stocking.  I hand stitched everything, which didn't take all that long to do.  I made the rosette and aged the button with a black Copic marker. The stocking is made from a soy based batting.  Not sure what that means but it sounds "green".  I will add more to the front later (well when I think of something) to make it more festive. I very pleased with how it turned out.  I may do it for a class later on in the month.  Now I have to go look up what soy batting means. :)
Here's the link to the May Arts Contest

Cute little stocking. I haven't thought of using the copic markers on a button. Thanks for the idea
