Made this Christmas stocking for my Mum. Used some lovely metallic mink velvet which worked beautifully with the Designers Guild cut velvet on the top trim. I still had some of the turquiose velvet left to make a piping trim and then I bought some turquiose dupion silk for the lining.
Luckily most of the presents I had bought for mum this year were small enough to fit in the stocking so it ended up being useful!!
