Cross Stitch Christmas Stocking from Scratch
Back in the day, we owned a cross stitch shop and we stocked these Charles Craft stockings:
Stocking to Recreate
Of course, now they don’t make them any longer or if they do we can’t find them. At the time we made several members of our family these stockings, most notably Sue’s sister’s family. Sue’s niece is now grown and married. She has her old stocking and her husband has one that was her dad’s. Enter Dominic and we are scrambling to create a stocking that looks similar to this one.
These stocking used to come in two colors, so we assigned red for the girls and green for the boys. We will be visiting a few fabric shops to find a green swiss dot fabric that matches. That is just too darn hard to accomplish online when you want to match colors. We will need to add the cross stitch cuff as well – Sue will have to work on the perfect design for this little boy.
I’m thinking while I’m making one stocking I should really make a few – in both green and red. Hopefully there will be a sibling or two for Dominic, and if not, we can always give them away for a craft fair or whatnot. So wish us luck finding the appropriate fabrics for these.
