christmas stocking

christmas stocking
  • $65.00
my cousin jo and i spent years scared to death to get near anything made of chenille. this fear o' the fuzzy stuff developed after a long nap in aunt laura's guest bedroom. seems instead o' nappin' we told each other big made up stories while we carelessly picked all the lil fuzzy threads right outta her good saved for special guests bedspread. by the time we pretended to wake up and leave the room, that bedspread was about as bald as bald can be. no one had ever seen aunt laura so mad...so mad that afterwards if either of us came any where near chenille we felt faint. aunt laura must'a forgiven us somewhere along the line cause she passed on to us all her chenille when she went to meet her maker.

this chenille pattern was to aunt laura the equivalent of an original chanel suit - the absolute gold standard. knowing how she felt about it, my hand shook when i finally got brave enough to take sharp scissors to the beautiful old bedspread.

i topped the gorgeous pink, mint green and white off with more old chenille for a cuff then mint grosgrain ribbon and finally more precious chenille twirled into a blossom. it is approximately 21 inches from top middle of the cuff to the tip of the toe.

this stocking is one of a kind and is the exact stocking you will receive. it will arrive in a hand sewn bag so you can safely store it away with all your other christmas doo dads. all my stockings are made so you can hang them with the toe facing to the left or right as both sides are basically the same. soft enough to hold close while searching for treasures, this stocking is made strong enough for santa to stuff to the top. there are at least 3 layers of sturdy cotton and of course there is a sturdy loop for hanging.

last but not least - all my creations are made only after the materials they are made from - even the oldest - have been freshly laundered. please contact me via the contact button if you would like me to personalize it for you for an additional ten dollars.

success! feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
