by Mary D'Alton
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Here are 50 exquisite stocking designs -- most of which require only basic sewing skills -- in a variety of styles, complete with full-color photographs, easy-to-reproduce patterns, and detailed how-to instructions. Designer Mary D'Alton not only shows how to make the stockings, but provides scores of ideas on hanging, displaying, and storing the new creations. This book has something for everyone, whether the reader is inclined toward a traditional stocking with antique lace and buttons...a colorful, jazzy stocking of appliqued felt...or even a stocking made of beads and bent wire. The author utilizes a variety of techniques (painting, stenciling, stamping, applique, embroidery, beading, and more). For readers who like to break with tradition, there are even stockings made from quite unusual materials, such as wire, wood, metal, and grapevine.
