This sweet Christmas stocking is newly handmade from a 1950s vintage barkcloth with a design small Grandma Moses' vignettes. The design was identified on the fabric selvage simply as "Tiles." Details are:
~ The stocking is a traditional size, measuring 21 inches vertically from the top of the cuff to the bottom of the toe (not including the hanging loop), when it is displayed as shown in the photos.
~ The stocking is finished on both sides, so it can be displayed with the toe pointing in either direction or in a place where it will be seen from both sides. Each side has different vignettes. My stockings look pretty hung from the mantle at Christmas time, but are also lovely when hung on coat trees, wooden peg boards, door and cabinet knobs, chair backs, on floor lamps, or put in the center of a rustic wreath. A stocking filled with assorted special toiletries and small personal care items also makes wonderful welcoming gift for visitors in a guest room.
~ The foldover cuff is hand-dyed Christmas red Cabin Crafts "squiggle" vintage chenille bedspread fabric.
~ The full lining is quilting cotton in a tonal white (white on white) holly design. The hanging loop is red satin ribbon.
~ I used multiple layers of two different tailor's interlinings on the body, lining and cuff to give the stocking a finished appearance and add structure and durability. The stocking body is 12 layers of fabric thick, counting both sides and the lining. A stocking with no interlinings (just the outer and lining fabrics) would be only 4 layers thick.
~ All seams are double stitched or serged, so the stocking can safely be filled with goodies at Christmastime.
