Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

I need to move beyond stockings…

I thought I was done with stockings and then I came up with a different idea.

These came out nothing like my ‘idea’ but they are fun {and that ‘idea’ is still rattling around up there…}.

The cuff on this one was made with ½ of a vintage linen napkin.

When I started this one I was planning to use the other half of the napkin but this just seemed to ‘fit’ better.

And, with the addition of a nicely-aged, red velvet button, it’s ready to go.

I designed a tag that I’ll just use @ my {one, so far} Christmas Show, A Vintage Christmas!

  1. I had to laugh. You need to move beyond stockings…I just need to get moving. It’s now less than a month to Christmas, and I had intended to make several gifts. Time is flying and I’ve not gotten started.

    A couple days ago I visited your daughter’s blog. What a beautiful young lady…inside and out. You must be well pleased.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed.
