    Cinnamon Stick Stocking II -- Bringing You Cheer & Delight from Homepsun Elegance - click to see more Cinnamon Stick Stocking III -- Bringing You Cheer & Delight
    from Homespun Elegance
    Oh.. we like this stocking design by Homespun Elegance. We like the shape, the angle of the sleigh and the verse, all the way down to the house and snowy yard beneath. It's a very traditional design... and it makes a timeless stocking!

    Along with little Avery's stocking... the chart offers a Door/Bed Post hanging that gives Santa a place to leave a note behind. A cute set, all is offered in the chart. Stocking finishes approx 15 x 22, is stitched with a variety of hand-dyeds and embellished with Homespun Elegance's neat olde worlde brass buttons.


    Christmas Dreams Stocking from The Drawn Thread -- click to see more Christmas Dreams Stocking
    from The Drawn Thread!

    *I'll be home for Christmas if only in my dreams* A charming Stocking design for someone special in the family, we like the verse, the house and snow-covered trees, the snow blowing all around in the sky, and especially the snowmen and pets playing near the bottom.

    A quiet and traditional design, it is stitched on 28ct Dirty Linen and features a smattering of petite gold seed beads, a few star buttons and charms, and tiny green buttons to adorn the snowmen. More fun stitches all throughout the design! There is a matching band sampler to this -- maybe you don't want a stocking and have some wall space??? Click to the inside DT pages to see it.


    Mistletoe Stocking from The Victoria Sampler - click for more Mistletoe Stocking from The Victoria Sampler
    Geometric patterns grace the front of this stocking, rather than Santa flying through the sky! Quite a different design subject, this reminds me of the old Cross Stitch and Country Crafts *wallpaper* stockings, and Just Nan's vertical band sampler stockings. Offered as a leaflet, Mistletoe Stocking features bands of mistletoe, separated from the bands of Hardanger Embroidery by lots of specialty stitches. LOTS of texture and design interest... putting a dark lining behind your Hardanger really showcases your stitching talents!

    Worked on 28ct Taupe Cashel Linen in STUNNING threads of #4 Vatican Gold Braid, Bordeaux Gloriana Silk, Moss Waterlilies, 4mm burgundy silk ribbon, white pearls, and cranberry, cream and gold beads, this is an elegant stocking presentation that finishes into a generous 10-1/2 x 16-2/3 inch piece. Perfect for Santa's treats! Offered as the leaflet, with linen and accs pack separately, use white perle cottons #8 and 12 from your stash, or add those packs!




    Holly Berries Stocking from Rosewood Manor - click for more Holly Berries Stocking
    from Rosewood Manor
    This is so pretty!!! Rosewood has designed a stocking that can be finished into almost ANY SHAPE you wish... just keep going with your vines and holly leaves if they aren't where you need them! The holly leaves and berries are worked in DMC floss, while the backstitched vine is gold metallic -- which adds LOTS of elegance. The leaflet contains the entire alphabet of initials so you can personalize for anyone in the family. There is also a set of 10 tiny ornament designs in here that match and coordinate with the main design -- quite a neat bonus.

    THEN, she has the entire stocking -- as it is -- charted ALL IN ONE PIECE on a separate pull-out sheet. So... if you don't like her shape... this is the time to re-position some stitching and make it the shape you want! A very classy, traditional stocking design!!! Offered as a leaflet, if you stitch this on 28ct Cream Cashel Linen, it will finish approx 12 x 18-1/2.


    The Shepherd's Bush Stocking Collection... 18 And Counting!!!
    Wow... this is the most charming collection of Christmas Stockings... Shepherd's Bush has designed a new stocking every year -- 2010 will be the 18th edition! Always offered in leaflet format with separate charm packet... each stocking is named after a member of Tina and Terri's family!

    Always stitched on 18ct Natural Linen with #5 Perle Cottons... a few feature Rainbow Gallery's Alpaca thread for hair, and in the recent years, the girls have started using more and more Weeks and Crescent Colours overdyed perle cottons. Our Stocking Cut of linen is a 'fat quarter', which measures 18 x 27 inches. There is plenty of extra room to make some smaller matching ornaments and such from the cut. We carry EVERYTHING for EVERY stocking... and can even recommend our very own Magic By Mona to sew together your stockings... in time for The Big Day! So, browse the collection, and enjoy!

    Whooo Owl Stockings from SamSarah Design Studio Not Even a Mouse from SamSarah Design Studio Not Even a Mouse and Whooo Owl Stockings
    from SamSarah Design Studio
    Sam Sarah has two new stockings to add to her set of 8 others! These are all stitched on Weeks 20ct Hand-dyed linen -- all in different colors. Patti uses Watercolors hand-dyed Perle Cotton for these... that it what makes all the colors *move* in these. Quite on the contemporary side of stocking designs... these are a fun option, and there are enough for an entire family!

    Mouse and Owl join, Kitty, Puppy, Nick, Cocoa, Snowkids, Ornaments, Sugarplums and Reindeer. The names are spelled out in alphabet buttons... these are wood with paper letters, but Just Another Button Company has letter 'tiles' almost like Scrabble letters. They look great on these stockings, 4 different colors... we special order your name's letters. Pattern suggests 2 inches of fabric around design -- a little easier on Santa's budget! Whooo has 4 tiny black buttons in those eyes... big beads will work as well.


    Puppy Stocking from SamSarah Design Studio - click for more Kitty Kitty Stocking from SamSarah Design Studio - click for more Kitty Kitty and Puppy Stockings
    from SamSarah Design Studio
    SamSarah continues her fun set of Christmas Stockings with something for the fur-lovers in your family -- or the little fur-balls, themselves!!! What makes these so unique from the other stocking designs that we carry are the Watercolor hand-dyed cottons used to stitch on the fun colors of 20ct Weeks hand-dyed linen!

    Big, bold, eyecatching designs... these all look great from across the room... especially hanging from the mantle! Personalize the top with alphabet letter buttons, too! Puppy is stitched on 20ct Straw, Kitty is worked on 20ct Red Pear. Too Cute!

    Gigantics from SamSarah Design Studio
    This is a charming collection of stockings by Sam Sarah Studio's Patti O'Connor. VERY unusual in our world of stocking offerings... these are worked on Week's Dye Works 20ct Hand-dyed linen in Caron Collection's hand-dyed Watercolors #5 Perle Cottons. Brilliant, fresh colors, big and bold motifs, each is garnished with Scrabble-type clay initial tiles to spell the name! (Easy to change out of need to, as well!)

    Anyway, see the 'movement' in the solid areas??? That is YOU stitching the threads in a circular fashion, rather than across the rows. The variegation in the threads adds SO MUCH interest, texture and depth. You can, of course, stitch these in solid DMC Perles if you aren't into the overdyeds... simply letting the bold designs speak for themselves! Very cute stockings -- different from all the others, all are offered as leaflets, and we carry all the fabrics and threads!

    The Just Nan Stocking Collection
    I just want to highlight -- in one place on our site -- Nan's lovely collection of Christmas Stockings. Each have been annual releases, and cover 8 years! Timeless designs, each is prettier than the last. Lots of verticall bands, pretty stitches, beads and crystals, you'll notice that the top bands do not feature names. If you like, you can add that to the top of each... but I like that small tag that can hang off the side... a really classy way to announce the owner!

    The Angel Stocking features a center area that will fit ANY of Nan's 15 Annual Angels... so you have LOTS of choices for this one! (You could stitch the whole family angels, using the same main stocking design. This leaflet includes one angel design.)

    Little Victor -- Nan's first grandson -- arrived almost 5 years ago, and his stocking does differ from the rest. He has that darling teddy bear, and lots of tiny motifs from Nan's other Christmas designs! More color for Victor -- he IS kind of a bold little personality -- so he deserves to be different from the rest!

    Anyway, quite an eye-catching collection of elegant stockings, totally different from the usual whimsical stockings available... stunning hanging from an elegant, traditional mantle! Each is offered as the leaflet with embellishments.

    The Bent Creek Collection
    7 Stockings so far in this collections -- I wish we had a finished model of the newest one... I wanted all my pictures to be the same! CUTE, CUTE group -- each is stitched on 18ct Natural Linen in Gentle Art and Weeks hand-dyed flosses. You could always use Perle instead -- your preference. Easy charts, just precious designs!

    The shape of these finished models are a bit 'stubby.' YOU CAN CHANGE THAT! Simply draw a different outside shaped template... even adding that little toe-reinforcement crescent of stitching like a real sock has would work for these! All are offered as leaflets, and feature separate clay embellishment packs.

All are offered as charts, we carry all the necessary threads, fabrics and embellishments!

  • I Saw Three Ships from Erica Michaels - click for more Peace on Earth from Erica Michaels - click for more Peace on Earth and I Saw Three Ships
    from Erica Michaels
    Two crisp white doves against a deep sea blue background... and sailing ships floating amongst the rolling waves -- billowy clouds in the sky -- pretty pictures, these do present! Two charming miniature 2 x 2 stocking cuffs... both of these designs can be stitched and framed if you wish, but Linda shows tiny wool stocking ornaments (2 X 5) as finishing options.

    Lovely color, subtle shading because of the overdyeds, each stocking pattern comes with the 40ct silk gauze, chart, and stocking cut-out templates and instructions for easy finishing. You'll need a schnigglet cut of our Weeks Wool to make the stocking, lots of great color options with that.

    Glad Tidings Stocking
    from Erica Michaels
    Erica Michaels' fifth Christmas Stocking design... this is rich and elegant! Stitched in size 5 Perle Cottons, the model uses a Watercolors thread to give the hand-dyed color variation you see. The diamond-patterned lines in the background are stitched in Soft-Sheen Fyrewerks -- a metallic from Rainbow Gallery that isn't really too bright and shiny, but adds the elegance! Measuring a generous 12 x 20 when finished... the chart inside is almost full size! The cardinal on the smaller stocking is really a punch needle design... the transfer for it is included too!!!

    Better Homes & Gardens Heirloom Christmas Stockings

    Snowy Friends Trio by Lorri Birmingham Designs.  Click to see all 9 stockings -- a big file!Holy Cow... This wonderful softcover compilation of nine of the most favored Christmas Stocking patterns EVER published... is available again!!! Originally appearing annually in Cross Stitch and Country Crafts Magazines beginning in the late 1980's... we were treated to a new stocking every year... for 10-12ish, years, I think... until the Magazine and publishing rights ceased. For a few years following, leaflets of the stockings were available... then they stopped. Then this particular book came out... and it went out of print shortly thereafter.

    So, to make a long story short, this collection has been very hard to get -- all at one time -- for quite some time!!! Beautiful pictures, nice charts, all in 64 pages! Even if your stash already has some of these charts, get this book!!! You'll never be sorry you did! Each stocking is stitched on 25ct Lugana and measures approx 11 x 17, stitched in DMC flosses. Definitely family heirlooms, the nine featured are the Workshop, North Woods, Music Room, Kitchen, Home, Sugar and Spice, Stitcher's Studio, Toys & Games, and Study!!!



    When your stitching is complete... do you need your stocking sewn together???
    We suggest our very own Magic By Mona -- mgbost@cox.net -- a talented seamstress who can finish your stocking with a flourish!
