I recently completed a set of six hand painted Christmas stockings for an order.
I taped them up on my mantel just to get a quick pic.
It all started with my first set hand painted stockings that I painted a long time ago
on stockings I found on Ebay. I've added new designs each year and now have my
stockings made for me by a local seamstress.
For this order, she wanted a seahorse stocking...
I love the jellyfish!
And the sea turtle.
I've reworked the design on the sea turtle since the last
batch of stockings, making it more like the shape that I use
on my sea turtle mosaic surfboard ...
They are all painted in dotted design using
coastal colors of blues, whites and metallic gold.
All the cuffed tops have the same pattern
And I finish the backs with simple white dots.
Update January 2015... I added more sea life stocking designs this past Christmas
there are a few styles left and they are available in my Etsy Shop.
This may be the last year I offer them so get them if you are
