Handmade Stocking Filled with Joy

I wish I could say this stocking is mine, well it is sort of. I made it for someone. Who? Now that's a secret! Yes this sweet Christmas stocking is for a secret friend. I made it as part of a Victorian Christmas Stocking swap being hosted by my dear friend Sherry Bamsey. It was a collaboration with my Mom. (If you call going to my Mom's house robbing her fabric stash, then making her sew it, a collaboration!) I took my stocking home finished it off and filled it with some precious stash items. I think I did good, my rule of swapping is, that if you don't want to part with it, its good!! I hope my secret friend loves it! 

{I probably will not be able to fit all the goodies inside!}

{yes, parting with this amazing avon mini perfume bottle}

{bags filled with ephemera both paper and dimensional}

{vintage goodies}

{Christmas ephemera}

{just the stocking}

{i am glad it looks good hanging, I didn't even think of it while I was making it, if it would hang nicely!}
-I have some more swaps to share but can't spoil the fun!
What are you creating for Christmas?

  5. I adore my stocking! Thank you, Denise! It is absolutely gorgeous and looks so beautiful hanging on my mantel. I love all of the vintage goodies inside, especially the swan perfume bottle and the little deer!
