I am getting into the holidays as I start to paint my holiday craft show items. I wanted to paint a denim stocking and I did not have one. Here is what I did, I took a pair of my husband's jeans that had a hole in the knee and cut off the leg right below the knee and pulled inside out. Drew a stocking right onto the jean leg with a pen, took to sewing machine and sewed on my line. Cut out and then sewed on a piece of fun fur and a piece of side seam for hanging, and stocking was done except painting it. Painted a snowman, added a some glitter and Done, yep I love it!
