Color your world: Denim

prompted by angloswiss

This is the best use of old denim jeans that I have ever seen.

This is the Gent’s stocking my sister in Vancouver made for Christmas one year.It’s all lined and totally hand made. The foot is soft suede.

This is mine, with the front of his, showing the decoration. The lady’s foot is black velvet with lace overlaid and sprayed with ammonia to make the pattern.

She made patchwork ones with ballerina shoe bottoms for her dancer granddaughter.

We have them hanging up year round, on the lava rocks of the fireplace, for obvious reasons. Aren’t they gorgeous?

  1. I hope you and Jan hang your stockings. We had a sort of problem last year because Mrs Claus filled H’s stocking on Christmas Eve but Santa filled it again when he did mine. We’ll have to settle on who does what this year. xx
