Red Noel ~ $50

Red Noel was the first of my generic designer stockings.  It is approximately 14" long, made of an ivory cotton damask fabric with a red satin lining.

A matching name tag can be made if desired.

The crown border began with a 1 1/2" red ribbon, over which was placed a sheer red sparkle ribbon, with red upholstery trim over it all, beaded with white Swarovski crystal elements, and finished with a red beaded trim.

The letters NOEL were individually cut from burgundy red felt and stitched on by hand.  The stitches were hidden by red seed beads.

Three of the poinsettias were taken from a decorative Christmas pick, the fourth and largest was made by hand from the same red felt as the NOEL lettering and made to match as much as possible.  The scene is accented by smaller decorative blossoms made of ribbon and faux pearls, plastic beads shaped as red and white Christmas lights, white Swarovski crystals, clear glass seed beads, and one red cardinal button.
