Shabby Chic Christmas Stocking

Hello my dear friends,
today I would like to share the stocking I made for the  Fine and Faniful  II  class by Nancy from Sugar Lump Studios.
I used drop cloth as the base and rubberstamped the French script on to it. I just love how it turned out.
Below you can see a close up.
I think the soldered charm finishes it off nicely and I’m sure it wasn’t my last stocking.
A big thank you from my heart for all the kind comments and well wishes regarding my dental work. I had the worst part done today and it wasn’t fun but I’m just so glad it is behind me.
Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Linking up for White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage where you can see more beautiful whites

Hugs and love,

Marie this is absolutely gorgeous!
Love all the very beautiful laces and your added extras like the soldered charm and that rose with the pearls on top. Is this made of layers of cheesecloth?
Hope you are feeling a little better and not so sore and bruised from you dental work now! It's not much fun at all. You need lots of pampering now!
Thinking of you with love and hugs,

That stocking is so pretty it brings tears to my eyes! I am so proud of you! Back in February you said you could not sew and look at what you have created here! The Noel charm adds such a nice unexpected touch to it!

Hi Marie
At a loss for words.
I was awaiting something exceptional knowing you were signed up for Nancy's class but this is remarkable. Adore the soldered charm, the most beautiful of finishing touches.
Thank goodness the main part of your dental work is behind you. Take good care of yourself.

Ira said...

Your stocking is a regular beauty Marie! Love your shabby chic flower and gorgeous charm! Such a coincidence we're both sharing stockings on our blogs, but then again what would you expect around this time of year, lol! Glad to hear your dentist was kind to you... Hugs, Ira

Lululiz said...

Another exquisite creation by you, Marie. I don't know what drop cloth is ( I wonder what the UK equivalent could be ), but boy, does it look fabulous stamped. And all those gorgeous embellishments make it truly beautiful. A very elegant piece.

Hi Marie,

Obviously this is an old post, but I am searching high and low for a shabby chic Christmas stocking and the one you have made is absolutely perfect. I am just wondering if there is any possibility you still have this or one just like it which I could purchase from you to make someone's Christmas.

Appreciate your help,

Hi Chris,
I didn't had a way to contact you, so I'm leaving a comment here.
Sorry, but the stocking is no longer available.
XO Marie

Hi Marie,

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate your help. You wouldn't know of anywhere I could get a stocking like this would you? I am finding it very hard to find one.

Thanks again,


Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Try Etsy, Chris. I'm sure you will find one there.
