Christmas Stocking

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I guess I'm just happy and proud that I can still manage to crank out gifts like this. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Stockings are so often kept over the years so make them beautiful and special for each person.

What you will need

  • I just finished another Christmas stocking and since some of you
  • like me
  • need some ideas for holiday sewing
  • I thought I would share. This is one of seventeen that I've made over the years for my family and friends who I think of as "family." I make the stockings from silk dupioni
  • both inside and out
  • backed by a lightweight press-on interfacing and sandwiched with "Warm and Natural" batting. Each one if different and I've used many different techniques on them which I can note on each picture. I print two pictures on fabric of each child/adult along with my note and attach them to the top of the lining. They are quite "glitzy" when finished
  • and not really like the usual stockings. Santa has never turned them down so I guess they pass his critical test.
