So my MIL has stockings for the whole family made back in the early 60's so when my hubby came along in the late 70's the stockings could no longer be found so his kind sisters bought a drugstore stocking and put his name on it with glitter and called it good. Well hubby spent his whole life bummed that his stocking didn't match the rest of the family's and most importantly the toe of his stocking pointed the opposite direction. So without further ado I give you a family of stockings made to match the originals as closely as possible. TOES POINTING IN THE PROPER DIRECTION! I will hang them up at my MIL's for a suprise. Now not only his stocking matches but so do all of his children's and his wife's.
and a close up
These aren't really my true christmas style but they are good replica's of the old ones, they are made of flannel and bias tape with some fur. The most time consuming part was the chain stitching of the name. I tried to match the font but it is hard to mark on FUR! Also I couldn't find shiny fur like MIL's stockings
sorry about the fuzzy pics - our camera is losing it
