Denim Christmas Stocking

Those discarded jeans come in handy again. lol
I stitched muslin fabric on the back of denim so that I could cut inside the stitched areas for the fraying effect without having any contents fall out.
The side seam of the jeans worked perfectly for making the hang loop.

One side of the tag says Dec. 25th, same as the other one I made.
The other side I stamped Merry Christmas.

Just to show you how really fluffy and frazzled the edges turned out.

Many, many buttons added!
I don't think I can bear to give this one away either. Sigh. Back to the drawing board. I really want to give my stocking swap partner a hand made stocking!!! LOL

Girl every stocking you make is beautiful and I love... you are going to have to let go of one. LOL Is Kellie a friend of yours? I need her information for the swap. I emailed but haven't heard yet. She is my partner, got any ideals on what I can put in her stocking????

Kristie, when I first saw this stocking pic, I thought it was very nearly the cutest thing I ever laid eyes on in my entire life. Then, I proceeded to the next post, and the next, and the next. And that's when I realized you're a genius.

My mercy! You make some beautiful stuff, woman! Can't wait to see what's coming my way -- and what I can come up with for you. I'm excited about the challenge.
