Upcycled Vintage Linen Christmas Stocking - Floral
We repurpose beautiful vintage linens for home vintage quilt stockings.
Each stocking is one-of-a-kind in this collection.
WHAT MAKES OUR STOCKINGS SPECIAL!
We make amazing stockings that will NOT look floppy hanging on your mantel. Each stocking is GUARANTEED to hold its perfect shape. We line the inside of the stocking so there will be no exposed seams. All our stockings are 100% handmade by us in our shop in Santa Cruz, California, USA!
ABOUT THIS COLLECTION/STOCKING
For this collection, I pull from my vintage linen stash for the front and use our authentic reproduction grain sack fabric on the cuff and on the back of the stocking.
CONSTRUCTION OF STOCKING
We use quality thick interfacing to help keep the shape and form of the stocking. I'm sure you won't find a stocking with foam interfacing because it is costly and time-consuming to work with, but the end result is wonderful! The inside is lined with premium (not cheap) natural muslin. We add a thick twill tape loop that is stitched multiple times with upholstery weight thread to give a firm and durable hold so that you may stuff your stocking year after year without compromising the loop. The seams are stitched and serged to stop any separation when the stocking is filled.
PERSONALIZE YOUR STOCKING
You may also have your stocking personalized which looks terrific on the grain sack fabric. We silkscreen the names in black fabric paint and then permanently heat-set the paint.
7 1/2" wide at the top
11" overall width
23" hang (this measurement includes the length of the loop and putting the stocking at an angle which is the way it hangs)
Here is what my family says to me... I'm a perfectionist, and I put my heart into making QUALITY beautiful heirloom stockings that can be used year after year and even passed down! My family says, "Mom, you spend too much time making the stockings. They are just stockings!" And I say, no, they are special! One of the most special parts of Christmas morning is getting your stocking. Children look at the stockings hanging all month and dream about what will be in them. Boyfriends hide engagement rings in them. Christmas surprises always make their way to the stockings. Stockings are my kids' favorite part of Christmas morning. So I take it to heart! I make beautiful stockings and think about each person who will hold them on Christmas morning :) I'm honored to be part of your morning in this very special way.
Thanks for looking.
