Earlier this week I was charged to help my friend Brooke find Christmas stockings like the one she had as a kid. It was a quilted check fabric with her name embroidered on it. Needless to say, it’s pretty hard to find stockings like the ones our parents had made for us – those first stockings are pretty special.
However, I did find a whole heavenly host of stockings upcycled and recycled from vintage fabrics. Behold!
