Finally Some Etsy Christmas Cheer

My poor Etsy store has suffered lately.  I have been so busy with the new antique booth and then of course there is all the time I spend playing with Mason!  I have sadly let it get rather  bare - but,  I am working on correcting the problem.
I made six mini stockings using vintage lace and fabrics.  I love the way they turned out.
I am totally tempted to keep these adorable baby stockings.
I can think of so many ways to use them.
They all measure 7.5” – 11” long including the hanging loop.

Here they are up close and personal!

“Warm & Natural” all cotton batting with new lace overlay and bits of vintage lace

Pale blue linen with bits of vintage linen & a mother of pearl button
New lace overlay with  lace from a vintage collar around the top

I made this using a vintage tea towel with crocheted lace on it

100% linen with vintage crochet lace, new lace, and frayed canvas ribbon

More natural batting with bits
of a vintage Battenberg table cloth
I am adding them to my Etsy store, “The Shop @ Blue Creek Home”,  tonight.
A few Christmas pillows are in the works.
