This extra-long stocking is made from a lovely 1950s mid-century vintage barkcloth fabric in a design featuring botanical sketches and named "Manuscript," created by William Ward Beecher of Associated American Artists. I made the stocking longer than my traditional stockings in order to show as much of the barkcloth design as possible. The stocking measures 23 inches vertically (not including the hanging loop) when it is hung as shown in the photos, so it is 3 inches longer than my traditional stockings. The last photo shows this stocking with one of my "standard" size stockings to illustrate the difference in length.

The cuff of the stocking is Christmas red Morgan Jones mini-buttonhole vintage chenille bedspread fabric. The full lining is new cotton fabric with a red and white snowflake design. The hanging loop is red satin ribbon.

The stocking is finished with the same fabrics on both sides, so you can display it with the toe pointing right or left or where it will be seen from both sides. My stockings make lovely decorations all year long. Hang one on a chair back, bedpost, door or door knob, on the front of a cabinet, or even on a floor lamp. Fill one with special little luxuries to greet a visitors in the guest room or to give as a gift.

I meticulously design and construct my stockings to be durable and have a finished appearance. I used multiple layers of three different interlinings on the body, lining and cuff of the stocking. In addition to the stabilizing interlinings, seams are triple stitched or serged, the the stocking can safely be filled with lots of goodies at Christmas.

The shipping weight for this stocking is two pounds. Shipping cost is given for the farthest U.S. destination, because Etsy does not have a way to calculate shipping to different zip codes. In many cases, the cost will be less, and I will refund the difference through Paypal immediately following shipment.
