Pieced Christmas Stocking...


Can one have too much fabric ???
NEVER ;)

This Christmas stocking was made from my old 
silk blouses, cashmere cable knit sweaters and mohair sweaters.  
(All of which I had been saving for "something special")
The buttons came from my Button jar, salvaged from repurposed clothing.


It was during this time that I began experimenting with piecing quilt tops....
and loving every minute of it !

So...it made perfect sense to piece a Christmas Stocking 
for Daughter #2 - Monica.
