This stocking is quite unique.....I found this doily at an estate sale, it was badly stained, but I saw the potential.....someone did beautiful handwork on it ,and I was determined to save it!!! After it was washed and cleaned, I cut out the part that could be saved.......I then sewed a cotton velveteen stocking with the doily part on the front!!!
She is about 21" long, with a sheer gold bow at the top, gold ribbon ruffle, bronze bell at the tippy toe, and a quilted lining. The doily is a stamped item, some of the blue ink is still visible at the edge, and I believe it is done in silk or rayon thread, the work is very well done, wait till you see this!!!
