It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Okay, Not really, especially since it is in the 70’s today!!

Yippee and I’m not complaining at all about that!!

I’ll take it. :)

But I have been sewing away on Christmas ornies and stockings.

I cant show off the ornies because they are gifts I am sending out but…

Here are some stocking I have made.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

The one to the right was my first one… we will get back to that one in a second. ;)

But here are the two I have listed in My Etsy Shop.

Burlap Stocking with Prim Patches.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy 

I used the same burlap sack on both sides of stocking.

The inside on the stocking is lined with cotton fabric.

I also hand sewn a couple prim patches, made from true early black and white calico fabric, to the stocking.

And added a bell to both sides at top.

The next one, I think, turned out really pretty.

I consider this my “Farmhouse” stocking. :) Hehee!

 A Primitive Place ~Tammy

The front was made from a vintage burlap sack.

The stocking is lined with the same fabric as the back.

 A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Along the top I added rusty safety pins, bells and one old key.

Then I finished it off with a stiff snowflake star doily ornament, tied on to the safety pin.

Okay, now back to the 1st one I made.

Well, as you might be able to see…

I accidently cut the stocking out upside down.


A Primitive Place ~Tammy

It is lined inside with the same fabric as the back and the prim cuff.

The front was made from a vintage burlap feed sack.

Good morning Tammy.
Don't you know that when something like the stocking with upside down lettering is made that it is a one of a kind and very valuable...lol Yes, it would be a very valuable 'treasure' hand made by you....and I'd be honored to own it if my name was drawn.
All the stockings are adorable.
