SAORI Christmas Stocking

A local store has challenged Salt Spring Artists to create ‘Green’ Christmas stockings to be auctioned off to support the Salt Spring Conservancy.

So, I took some denim jeans (that were no longer suitable for wearing – not even for the thrift store) and cut them into strips to weave with. I also put in some bits and pieces from my treasure baskets (aka weaving thrums – leftovers that would often get thrown away) to add some colour and texture.

Here is the weaving as it was progressing…

I have also saved the pockets to attach them to the stocking…

So, I had the (very heavy) pieces of cloth for the leg of the stocking, but what to do about the toe?

One day I was at the local thrift store with my cousin and she found a red hat with tassels – perfect size and great colour for the toe…


I added a crocheted red heel to match, removed the tassels from the hat to use as a stocking hanger at the top, added some bells from old Christmas gifts and decorations that I had saved and here it is completed…
