Vintage Wool Christmas Stockings

Being a grandmother for the first time this summer
gave me a new appreciation for baby clothes.

As the mother of four girls, I was especially excited about buying baby boy clothes for the first time. 

In a bag of hand-me-down baby clothes I was surprised to find a few pairs of vintage baby socks.

The socks had such a beautiful vintage texture and color...

Who in the world would even think of putting these on the baby... they were headed for Grandma's craft room!

With a glue gun I easily added buttons, pearls, and bows...

Baby stockings will be especially meaningful this year with
a new baby in the house for Christmas.

We will have to buy this baby something else
to keep his little toes warm.

  1. I'll bet you'll find something for those baby toes.

  2. Several years ago I was in Beaune France and wandered upon a flea market. At that market I bought a large box of what I would call "Lace bits". One of the bits in box was a babies sock, just one. I thought I had thrown it away, but while packing I found it. It is now labelled with a tag so that when I unpack boxes late next year I can do something like you have done to yours. When I do do it, I will make sure to blog about it and give you credit for the inspiration.
