I've made the coastal design stockings since 2011
and have added new designs each year.

This year I added a dolphin stocking

I free hand the scallop design on the top of each stocking cuff
then use my own stencils to lightly draw out my design and
fill in with the dots...millions and millions of dots!

They all have simple white dots scattered on 
the back and my signature in gold.
I get lots of questions every year about where to find these plain
stockings. Well, I couldn't find them either, so I have the stockings 
custom made for me out of natural canvas material.

My tip for lots of canvas fabric? Buy large canvas dropcloths.
You must pre wash and completely tumble dry the dropcloths to shrink 
the weave in the fabric. My seamstress had to cut around the inevitable
seams in the dropcloth fabric but this technique worked great for 
me for many years. This type of canvas can have little threads 
of other colors in the weave but I loved the look!
