Personalized Christmas Stockings By Rosie Rose

You can order customized, personalized Christmas stockings from my Etsy store, I have a wide variety of designs to choose from or I can make something specially to your request. Here are some photos of stockings I have made (and me at work on them). Enjoy! -Rosie

Each stocking has many layers to sew down, and lots of colors, which means switching thread color frequently.

fantasy/medieval theme

One of my favorite themes, are these Grandma Moses style primitive rustic villages.
the yarn stitched down to form roads, I actually spun myself by hand.

For every stocking I do a sketch to be approved by the customer before I begin sewing.

include linen, silk, wool, cotton, and vintage print fabrics.
