The Cardinal in the Pines Christmas Stocking features a little red bird, a cardinal, nestled in the pine tree watching the snow falling down through the pine trees.
The Cardinal Christmas stocking is made from gray herringbone wool fabric. The stocking has a red plaid wool fabric cardinal (bird) sitting in the pine tree. The tall pine tree is made from green tartan wool fabric and the smaller pine tree is green wool fabric. The bird and pine trees are hand cut and hand sewn onto the stocking using embroidery floss and ivory embroidery floss is used to hand-stitch snowflakes around the trees.
Each stocking is lined with muslin fabric and the stocking cuff is hand tea-dyed cotton batting. Fusible interfacing is added to the body of the stocking to give it durability. A heavy jute twine loop makes it ready to hang.
Approximate finished stocking dimensions: ~ 22" long from upper right corner of stocking to toe (56 cm) ~ 8 1/2" wide below the cuff (21.5 cm) ~ 11 1/2" wide from toe to heel (29 cm)
This stocking is made right here in the north woods of Maine and each stocking is individually crafted by hand, no two will be identical. Your stocking will closely resemble the one shown in these photographs.
