Ice day project

This week, my job is probably the most un-essential in town and since most of the outside surfaces are slipperyfrom the ice storm, I am staying home.
Nina told me she wanted a new stocking, she requested it be retro, colorful and have her name on it. I made these this morning, only using supplies from my craft closet. I think they are pretty cute and I hope the newlyweds like them too.
I used black velvet left from a quilt I made several years ago for the base, and felt, bought for 25 cents a pound at a clothing factory that is no longer in business. Felt is almost weightless and I got quite an assortment then for almost no money.


  1. Way to go!!! They look great! I love the fact you did one in checks and one in circles! It is so fun to create something with stuff you already have on hand! Love, Esther

  2. Those are absolutely adorable stockings. I like the polka dots a lot.

  3. Isn't it great to be able to do great projects like this while the weather is so yucky outside! I'm sorry to tell you this, but here this week we've hit 80 2 or 3 days. Its insane! That is an all time December record. What wacky weather in our country. Great thrift store finds below too!

  4. Those are so pretty! How fun! When I grow up I want to be just like you and Nina....
