What materials did you use? I used a WWII Navy uniform that had a lot of moth bites. I took a deep breath and went to work. The stocking was made for my step-father who is a Navy veteran.

What are you most proud of? There are so many elements of this stocking that make me proud. The fact that is's a piece of American history is humbling. I love the patches as they add an element of beauty on their own. What I am most going to take away from this project was the look of appreciation and awe from my step-dad. There may have even been a tear in his eye.

Oh my goodness this is amazing!!! My boyfriend is in the Navy and this is his first year stationed overseas for the holidays. Would you be willing to make one for me so that I may send to him?

Fabulous work. Could I pay you to make one for my Dad? He's a WWII veteran. Thank you. Melanieperkins2"yahoo.com
