Romantic Country "No Sew" Stocking

In one of my Romantic Country magazine issues I read about how to make a Christmas stocking the now sew way!
You know this tickled my fancy since I do not sew yet! I had some sweet Shabby quilted fabric leftover from my curbside chair redo, so I decided to give this project a whirl!
I laid a sock over the quilted material to get an eyeball for the shape and then hot glued the edges leaving the top part open.
I trimmed the right side with a pretty country lace and added a burlap and lace bow to the bottom with a button topper. (I used all hot glue) So much faster and for a decorative stocking it gets good results, by all means, if I could sew this I would! The mini stocking shown below was sewn, i just added the fluff!

This is the cute curbside chair that I shabbied pink and made a new seat for!
So country chic!
 The chippy Hoosier cabinet is the perfect backdrop for that Romantic Country feel!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Please stop by sweet Beverly's for more pretty pinks...
Hugs,

  27. Hi Olivia,

    Whenever you get sick and tired of being "Cinderella", could you hand over that gorgeous pink shoe? I know it would fit me perfectly!

    Hope you are enjoying your holiday season. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday and thanks for sharing your beautiful gift.
