Here are some of the stockings I've done over the years. Jasmine's, Alicia's, and Hailey's were done from kits (that I lucked on at garage sales :) )
The one that says Dorothy with the snow-mom and snow-daughter is my mother's. Last year, when I showed her Hailey's she was so tickled with it. She later mentioned to my hubby that she, in all her years had never had a stocking, even as a child. Soooo, that wonderful hubby of mine said, "Make her one." He was convinced that I could do it without a kit...so I got out my felt stash, and came up with this one. Mom was almost in tears when she found it under our tree Christmas morning. I got it from her today by telling her that I wanted to post pics of them here, so I am...just to make it honest LOL. The real intention is to refill it of course, hubby found her the most beautiful bracelet and cross necklace. Something else he found out she's never owned. He's so good at this! LOLOL You all may have to help me come up with another reason to snitch it back next year. She keeps it in a little box wrapped in tissue paper tucked safely in her dresser.
They are all hand appliqued with certian pieces stuffed lightly with batting to give them a 3-D effect.
The last two aren't appliqued, I hand painted those with fabric paint. I used heavy weight tablecloth linen for the stocking, it makes a wonderful canvas. I'm making those for the girls Godparents. I still have to sew the binding, its just pinned right now. They're kinda oversized, so it was hard to fit them in the frame.
Sorry they are kinda blurry, I have a web cam with still shot ability and it had focus issues today.
Merry Christmas eveyone!!
