And the Stockings were Hung on the "Chimney" with care

For a few years now, I have wanted new stockings. We have had ours for YEARS and I really wanted something that reflected more of my idea of christmas rather than a store bought random stocking. I had thought about sock stockings, crossed stiched stockings, knitted stockings & velvet stockings, amoung other ideas. But then I came across these on Pinterest:

So I got out my trusty Serger that my mom gave me a very long time ago: 

Got some AMAZING coffee burlap sacks from my dear friend Stephanie who works at a coffee roasting shop:

Began to cut them in stocking shapes:

Added a cuff and a few embelishments:

 Here they are. I LOVE them! (And of course the one with the great BIG COFFEE words is mine! :o) And unfortunately we don't have a fireplace, so this is where they go...until next year, when you will certainly see them hung on the mantel in our new house!
