Sailors' StockingsDecember 10th, 2010 in member junk
Another project using my pile of maritime charts... I cut out a stocking shape then sewed with some clear vinyl overlay for a little more durability. Made the stocking liner out of burlap and used nautical blue ribbon for hanging. My son and his current roommate are both graduates of the US Merchant Marine Academy...hence my source for all the charts. Now they're at flight school. Wanted to send them something to decorate their condo for Christmas, even if they don't have a fireplace.
Pattern or design used: My own design
