More new things.





I am having so much fun making the Victorian stockings. I have 7 done now, and as soon as i get done writing this i will go start another one.

I suppose i could them done faster if i just did them all the same, but the fun for me is to make each one a bit different from the last. And since the 'tag' line for the store is
"A unique collection of old and new", seems only right to have some one- of -a -kind items.

So, above is what i start with: a pile of fabric, trim, pattern i figured out ( how hard can a stocking be?). Add to the mix some jewelry, buttons and any other scraps of anything i can find, and you have the makings of a stocking.
Back to more fun!!
