Holiday Stocking with Robots

This Holiday stocking is for baby August.  Isn’t he cute?  Doing a robot theme was way more fun than I even imagined!  This stocking is for the brother of the Dinosaur Stocking I posted over a year ago. Click below on the tag ‘dinosaur’ to see that set pf stockings.   I think I this one fits very well with the rest of the family’s.  Thanks to my youngest son for coming up with the concept!

Holiday Stockings with Dinosaurs

This third set of large personalized holiday stockings was created completely from scratch for a family with a young son. When the family requested dinosaurs, I had a moment of hesitation and then a burst of inspiration. Dinosaurs must have enjoyed playing in the snow, right?  And they would have build snowosaurs wouldn’t they?  Do you see it???   This cat with the red satin ribbon bow and Chickadees  was based on a beloved pet.  I really like the birch trees and the antlered reindeer for the Dad    I placed the painted cotton fabric on quilt batting and machine quilted around the larger areas, and stitched straight lines of quilting on the back side.  The approximately 16″ tall stockings have a satiny lining and a cuff on the top with the painted name name of each family member..  A sturdy loop is stitched into the top back edge.  If you are interested in having me paint stockings for your family please contact me through this site. Taking orders now for December 2014  4 stockings for $400, 2 for $250.
