Mary Sue Heirlooms
Handmade, Personalized, Felt Applique
Beaded and Embroidered
Made with hologram sequins for extra sparkle!
**HANDMADE IN USA**
My sister, Mary and I, have been making these personalized, sequined and beaded, three dimensional, felt stockings since 1964, first for our children, nieces, and nephews, then for other family members. They have become cherished family heirlooms in many homes. The first one is still being hung and filled each Christmas! Handmade Christmas stockings become treasured keepsakes!
Our calendars are filled for 2013. If you would like to place an order, we will put you on a waiting list for 2014.
It costs you nothing until we are ready to begin work on your order.
All of our stockings are made to order. We never have extra stockings on hand.

About Our Stockings:
These are not imported factory made stockings! Every bit is appliqued, sequined, and beaded by hand. No glue is used. Each stocking is made of felt with felt applique, then lined with a coordinating cotton lining to cover the knots and threads, and for extra strength! There is never an additional charge for lining. Mary and I spend many hours looking for just the right lining as we feel the linings make the stockings even more special! Beautiful inside and out! Even though these stockings are made from kits, we use holographic sequins that are not included in the kits. Each stocking is sewn with great care and attention to detail. It takes many, many hours to make each stocking. Excellent quality!!
We have noticed that some of the stockings appear to have a rough appearance similar to canvas. I assure you they are all made from soft felt and it is just the particular picture. A picture is supposedly worth a thousand words, but in this case, maybe not! If you are interested in a particular stocking, let me know and I will try to get a better picture for you.
When you see your stocking, we are sure you'll love it! It is sure to become a treasured family heirloom.
We carry both current and vintage designs and we believe we have the best selection on the web! Check back often as we are always updating our stock!
None of these stockings are original designs. The majority of them are made from Bucilla Kits. (http:\\www.bucillachristmasstockingkits.org). Others are made from Janlynn kits, or Dimension kits.
We have made slight modifications to a few designs.
We are no longer selling stocking kits.
We are listed in the "Home Made in America Crafts Directory" - www.homemadeinamerica.com
Take a close look at the many stockings we offer, keeping in mind that pictures, though worth a thousand words, really can't do justice to the beauty of these lovely stockings!
