The ManFlesh's mom is a BIG Dallas Cowboys fans so I made her this stocking for Christmas this year.



The exterior is all vinyl, the liner is felt.  My favorite detail is the stitching on the vamp.



When I was making it, The ManFlesh reminded me that his mom still has and uses her childhood stocking and I told him that I wasn't trying to replace that, but give her a decoration she would like... however, Craft Doubt crept into my mind.  I didn't want her to feel like I was trying to replace her beloved childhood stocking or like she had to use mine to spare my feelings.  Turns out her childhood stocking is so fragile that this is the last year she's using it.  After the holidays, she's going to frame it so she needed a new one anyway!  YEY!

Wow!  Thanks you!  The ManFlesh's response when I told him my idea was "don't encourage her."  Hehe.   Tongue

Thank you!  It was kind of a gimme... we could put a Dallas Cowboys logo on anything and she'd like it at least a little.
