Vintage Stocking

The last of my customer order is done with this stocking. This one is made with wool felt, lined with Christmas print cotton. The patchwork top is made with Christmas print cottons. The mouse and the pouch he’s sitting in (you can’t see that part ;o~) are made with wool felt.


The way he’s sitting there, it’s kind of like…. Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house, not a creature was stirring !! Well except for the mouse. A little artistic license there. But he does look like he could be ready to cause a little trouble. He did manage to get into some of the trims and get them stuck on his head.


The top of the stocking has a little bit of embellishment in the way of some feather and other stitches, a little beadwork, a felt and beaded mitten and a touch of brown velvet ribbon to finish off.  There are little bells from the tip of his hat to the tip of the stocking toe.



On the heel I’ve done French knots and a bit more beading. I didn’t want to do any more than that. It would be easy to go a bit crazy, adding here, adding there and before you know it, the weight of it would pull the mantel down on Christmas Eve. ;o) See you soon with some ornament pictures…
