Stockings Hung with Care

We have had mismatched stockings for years and this year I decided it was time them to match, well sort of!  I started looking for ideas when I stumbled on the Horchow  website and saw these French Laundry Home Stockings at the rock bottom price of $98 a piece, YIKES!


I love the houndstooth and the  plaid.  I love the leather cuff and the red velvet piping.  Be still my beating heart I just had to copycat these!! 


 Brown houndstooth was difficult to find, but Hancock Fabrics had black houndstooth in their suiting section so my color scheme became black, white, gray and red.
I also needed 6 different stockings.  The rest of the fabric I bought as remnants from the Home Fabric store.  The "leather" uppers are good quality vinyl.

And here they are:






It was fun and so easy!    Now if I can just find someone to embroider them for me!  Please do not notice my sewing flaws.  They are not perfect, but that is what I like best about them.  There is just something extra special about doing it yourself!  I will be posting a tutorial on how I made them tomorrow.  Until then! 

Happy Trails!
