Christmas Stocking


This is Breckin's first Christmas and lucky Nana got to make his stocking.
I made it out of the satin fabric stash owned by his great grandmother Margaret.

I never had the chance to meet my mother-in-law, but I was fortunate to receive her vast collection of satin bolts. She used to make satin pillow cases from all that satin.

I thought Breckin's stocking should be made of his great grandma's fabric.
I did a little hand stitched embroidery to embellish the satin strips.

A beautiful stocking made for a boy with a lovely name! And how awesome was it that you could incorporate some history too? Happy CHristmas to you and yours!

Cynthia! I love where you heart! The stocking is just beautiful! I have a garage full of fabric that belongs to my MIL. All 1970's stuff! What a really good idea to preserve memory! Thank you!
