The turkey red and cream quilt in this stocking was made in the 1890s. The pattern of the quilt is known as Jacob's Ladder. The quilt was pieced by treadle machine and magnificently hand quilted at 8-10 SPI. Some of the quilting patterns are beautiful plumes. The stocking has a foldover cuff made from the border of the same quilt that I used for the body of the stocking. The full lining is a sweet reproduction 1800s new cotton fabric. The hanging loop is natural cotton twill ribbon. The stocking measures 22 inches vertically from the top of the cuff to the bottom of the toe (not including the hanging loop), when it is hung as shown in the photos.

I meticulously design and construct my stockings to have a professional designer appearance. I used multiple layers of three different tailor's interlinings in the stocking, lining and cuff for a finished appearance and to make the stocking more durable. Seams are triple stitched or serged. Because of the extra care I take in constructing them, my stockings are very sturdy and can safely be filled with lots of goodies at Christmastime.

The stocking is finished on both sides, so it can be hung with the toe pointing in either direction or in a place where both sides will be seen. My stockings make lovely decorations all year long, not just at Christmas time. 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 special gift for a very special friend or for a loved one's birthday.

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