Crazy Quilted Christmas Stocking

Crazy quilted Christmas stocking.

This is a Christmas stocking that is made by crazy quilting.  I start out with a stocking shaped piece of muslin and then bit by bit add the various holiday fabrics.  I used cotton quilting fabrics and one of them is a piece from the Laurel Burch collection.  I call this particular stocking crazy cat.  It is NOT embellished with embroidery but is just the mix and match of fabrics.  I have another in the works right now and I am doing some very simple cotton thread embroidery on that one.  The embroidery is time consuming and adds to the overall cost of the stocking.  This was made as a less expensive alternative.    After the crazy quilted part is done I add a lining in a plain fabric, in this case a sparkly green.
