These stockings are right up there with my favorite things to have EVER made! I LOVE patchwork and unique, dreamy, homey décor with a bohemian feel is without a doubt my favorite style!
Yesterday I shared a little peek of the fabric & felt flowers I spent the last couple of days making to dress up my first ever stockings-for-sale, and today I'm so excited to share this new handmade holiday item with all of you!
I started my own stocking assembly line by tracing one of my favorite extra-large sized stockings, purchased several years ago before I had learned to sew, to use as my template. I picked out a collection of fabrics with a "wintry theme" in mind -- low volumes, shimmery solids, with some traditional holiday jewel tone prints mixed in.
I added my patchwork using my Quick Quilt As you Go method to create these double-sided stockings that can be hung whichever direction you choose!
Each stocking is lined with a Fleet & Flourish knit and the hanging loops are made with AGF denim!
With each stocking comes a beautiful fabric & felt flower cluster with recycled sari silk fringe. I had so much fun making these and love how they turned out! Each is finished with a vintage ricrac loop so they can be easily removed to double as a pretty ornament, as well!
You can find these new quilted patchwork holiday stockings and my other handmade gift items in my Etsy Shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/maureencracknell
I hope you love them as much as I do!! XO Maureen
