First Stocking

This was my first attempt to recreate the traditional family stocking design for my husband.  It is approximately 20" long, made of royal purple/burgundy velvet with gold accent trim and white satin lining.

The details were tailored more to his interests than the Christmas season.

The Austrian Imperial eagle, made of felt, ribbon, and glass seed beads.

Beer stein with holly sprig, also made of felt and glass beads.

The crown of Charlemagne, made of double-thickness felt (for depth) and glass seed beads.  

And a bag of coal, just for fun.
