does size matter?

It just might matter when your kids are waking up on Christmas morning and there is a large stocking hung with care and full of toys and such!

This one is from Kristen. She says this is one of her favorites. It's quite big and holds lots of goodies. I love the fabric, such jolly snowman!

These are made from the girls at The Tin Thimble, my friends Emma, Sharon, and her sister Caron. These stockings are wonderful and are ones that I have admired for a long time, especially the argyle one! Each is made using a wet felting technique.

Made again by Sharon which is hand appliqued with wool felt fabric. If you want to see more of their work they will be at the Folsom Thursday Night Market on Sutter Street, tonight.

Love the different styles and colors. Cute stockings! After much build up about the Tin Thimble, I went up and paid them a visit. They ARE wonderful! The shop was delighfully filled with so many goodies. The ladies were very friendly too. No doubt, I will be back. And I urge others looking for vintage fabrics and notions, among other things, to pop in for some inspiration.
