This sweet Christmas stocking is newly handmade from a 1950s vintage barkcloth with a design taken from Grandma Moses' painting "Early Springtime in the Snow" a wonderfully seasonal design that she painted in 1945. I have used two different vignettes from the fabric, one on each side of the stocking. The barkcloth was never used, so the colors are nice and crisp. The foldover cuff is rare Morgan Jones red rosebud vintage chenille bedspread fabric. The full lining is a sweet reproduction feedsack new Christmas cotton fabric. The hanging loop is red satin ribbon.

The stocking is finished on both sides, so it can be hung with the toe pointing in either direction. 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 and on floor lamps. A stocking filled with assorted special toiletries and small personal care items also makes wonderful welcoming gift for visitors in a guest room.

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 satin ribbon hanging loop), when it is hung as shown in the photos. I used multiple layers of three different tailor's interlinings on the body, lining and cuff to give the stocking a finished appearance and add structure and durability. All seams are triple stitched or serged, so the stocking can be filled with goodies at Christmastime.

The shipping weight for the stocking is two pounds. Since Etsy cannot calculate shipping to different zip codes, shipping cost is given for the farthest U.S. destination. In many cases, the cost will be less, and I will refund the difference through Paypal immediately following shipment.
