Fall is nigh!

Hardangish Stockings

A Hardanger Machine Embroidery Series


My Hardanger Stockings are real stockings in the Hardanger Machine Embroidery tradition. Hang them up for the holidays and place gifts inside - candy, movie tickets, gift cards, or whatever fits!

Each stocking sewing inside a 5x7 hoop, finishing out to approximately 5x7 inches are finished in the hoop for you to add. In my sewouts, that's red fabric showing through the cut out areas, a the the toe and heel require the use of a Wingneedle, to complete the effect. The collection includes both stockings.

Make some new family heirlooms for the Christmas holidays, with Hardanger Stockings.

Please refer to the Educational pages for information about the Wing Needle and Cutting Fabric in the hoop before sewing these designs.

Don’t forget your Vilene!
