Handmade Sherlock Holmes inspired Christmas Stocking


My daughter is a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes stories.  She wanted a Christmas stocking to show her obsession and I obliged.

I drafted up a simple stocking and used some wonderful fabrics found on Spoonflower to construct.  The outside is the iconic address of 221B Baker Street.  The inside is steampunk style cogs which I thought matched the thinking processes of Mr Holmes.

I finished the top of the stocking with a plate for a key hole.  The project probably took an hour and was well received by the fan.
