Stockings - Mary's Collection


Thirteen needlepoint stockings, all finished the same!  I'll bet these look impressive on the mantle.
Each stocking has an suede fabric cuff added with machine embroidered name in gold thread.  The stockings are backed in the same suede fabric and lined in gold moir√© lining fabric.  Trimmed with purchased gold/cream cording and a tassel.  This special project took me many months to complete for my client, including finishing bits of stitching to ready for finishing as well as the complete background stitching of one of the stockings, pictured below.
