Denim and Linen Christmas Stockings

I love re-purposing denim in projects around our home, and this week I made a pair of denim and linen Christmas stockings.


For the cuffs, I used the same linen tea towelling fabric that I used to make our dining room table runner last year.


I intentionally placed the fabric so that the original seam of the jeans shows.


The stocking loops/hangers are pieces cut from the hem of the jeans. Perfectly worn in, seams and all.


Christmas decor in our living room and dining room uses lots of blues and is a bit rustic, so I think these stockings will fit in nicely.


Now I am off to help watch my husband and sons put up the outdoor Christmas lights. We like to get this done on a nice day like today because they are not fond of trying to hang lights or climb a ladder with frozen fingers and wet feet! 

 I am sharing this with...

  4. {Whistling} They look great, Elizabeth! Repurposed denim will always give me the warm and fuzzies. Love the teal towel cuffs. Pinning!

  6. Those are to cute:) I don't think my boys would have any jeans worth turning into stockings. There's look horrible by the time they throw them away. I guess GW would always be an option. Love yours!!

  16. Your stockings are great, Elizabeth! I love that you used jeans and the toweling fabric made for a great cuff. It goes so well with the jeans, too.

  17. Elizabeth, these are really cute denim stockings. Too bad I don't like to sew you make awesome stuff. About old windows...I get some really grungy ones and I use a pressure washer to clean them up. I have used my hose to get the junk off, too. If they don't come clean and the paint is still chipped - I might paint over it but I usually like them all "old and chippy". Goo luck with yours! :)

  18. Hey - we're "blog chatting"... :) Check out window replacement stores or glass shops to find old windows. I got both of my big ones for free at a local shop in CT. There is an architectural salvage store here in Richmond but he wants $250 (YES - Two Hundred and Fifty) for windows not nearly as big as mine ...Whew!
