Announcement   12/2/2017 - Prices of custom stockings will increase after this weekend due to closeness to Christmas and the cost of work time and materials.

Christmas 2017 - Back to do a limited quantity! I have several orders currently and I am finishing those up and assessing my materials in stock before I accept more orders. Thank you!! :)

Christmas 2016- For a very limited time I will be selling stockings again. Family life is busy busy now with our newest addition, our 2 year old that we adopted from China earlier this year :) These are the best quality stockings that you will find of the burlap, dot and zig zag designs...they are the originals. Many people have copied and even taken my images. I am looking into possibly seeking a lawyer for these situations. Thank you to my loyal customers. I will be coming out with more original designs in the future, Lord willing!

A portion of sales will go toward our adoption fund! We are adding to our family and will be starting the process soon to adopt our little one from China. For more information on our adoption journey go to http://www.scoottoournest.blogspot.com

All designs original, straight from my sketchbook. I love to make things, if an idea comes to my mind, I love to design it, make a pattern, pick out the fabrics and trims and create it! Coco Couture started off with women's & children's clothing, diaper bags, blankets and pillows and now, in addition I make sewing embellishments, Christmas Stockings and more!

My shop story-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After graduating from college with an Apparel Design and Manufacturing degree I did not know where to turn to find a job. I tried a few places but knew deep down that I wanted to start my own business. Having a dad and granddad who are entrepreneurs greatly influenced me to pursue a business. Someone who has impacted me even more in this is my mother. She has taught me many things about running a successful shop. I grew up going to markets with her while she picked out goods to sell at my parent's pharmacy. My very first job at their store was to take inventory and price the products that were going to be placed for sell. There is where I started to learn how to discern what people would like and buy and about the importance of quality products. She also gave me my first sewing machine as a high school graduation gift and gave me my first embroidery machine as a college graduation gift. These are two machines that have been vital to my success and I still use them both to this day.

I started Coco Couture soon after school and started sewing up my ideas. I did craft bazaars, fashion shows, designed a website and started an Etsy shop in 2006 back when Etsy was first starting up. I've learned a lot about business along the way and know that I have a lot more I can learn. The main and most important thing that I have learned is if you keep your priorities in order everything else will fall into place.

I started off on Etsy very slow and then one day I decided to post a picture of a burlap Christmas stocking that was a gift to my mother-in-law. Before I knew it I had several orders and that's when I realized I was onto something. I was pregnant with my second child at the time so I could only make so many that year in time for Christmas. The next year I decided to keep making my burlap stockings and try a new fabric for the cuff. I thought chevron would be so cute and I searched the web and Etsy high and low and there were no burlap stockings with chevron cuffs....I knew I was onto something good! I posted more Christmas Stocking listings than the year before and they took off! Thank you to Etsy my ideas and products are reaching people that I would not be able to reach otherwise.

This year I will continue to make my original Christmas stocking designs and hopefully have time to make some more ideas I have as well!

Thank you for your business with Coco Couture! I strive to make high quality products and have great customer service. Right now I am a one woman shop and I am a stay-at-home-mom so your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. I care about all of my customers and work hard to please everyone. I will get the products shipped ASAP within the time frame listed. If I am off, it may be by a day or two. Please understand I am doing my best!


Just so there is no confusion. These are the original set up of burlap stockings with the green chevron, red dot, green dot, red chevron and striped lining. Some shops on Etsy have popped up since last year with VERY similar sets. I don't want my customers to be confused ;) If you need an additional stocking to add to a previous order, you have come to the right place.
