When I left home as a young bride, I took my Christmas Stocking with me. It is getting a bit bedraggled but then, it is as old as I am so I supposed I look a bit bedraggled too! Lots of glitter on this!
Because my husband did not have a Christmas Stocking, I made one for him. I modeled it after my own Christmas Stocking. Let's just say that there was lots of glue and glitter involved. I didn't do such a good job making this, so several years ago I removed several items and reattached them using embroidery rather than glue. Then I added some star-shaped sequins and buttons. Santa's sleigh is spilling out toys and candy and presents for under the tree!
Fast forward to The Kid. I made his from a kit. It has 3D elements and bling; no glitter, thank goodness, but sequins and beads and more sequins! Oh my.
When The Kid got married I realized that my daughter-in-law needed one too. I played with the design and came up with this one from a border I made back in my scrapbooking days. Big pieces, thank goodness, and a minimum of sequins and beads. I did 'big stitch' when I appliqued the pieces on to the stocking.
I think I am going to go back and embroider names on the DIL and DH stockings. Mine has a fake fur top so I don't think the embroidery will work on it.
