Handmade Thorin Dwarf Boot Christmas Stocking Can't Post

Hi, everyone! I decided to try my hand at making Christmas stockings. So, I made my own pattern and came up with a stocking that looks like Thorin Oakenshield's boot!

Handmade by me from a heavy top-quality BLACK COTTON fabric for the outer base boot and inner lining (also used on the loop hanger at the top). The toe of the boot was made from a very high-quality wool-rayon-blend Felt and hand embroidered in the design of Thorin's real boot tip as seen in the movie. Faux fur was used on the front with twill-cotton windings and a silvertone buckle set to complete the design.

FULLY LINED. Everything has been sewn -- NO GLUE ANYWHERE! Some was sewn by hand and other parts on the machine, but NO glue or velcro anywhere.

I am thinking of making a few more, and have already made patterns for Bofur's boot, Nori's Boot, Bombur's boot, and Legolas' boot. They are super fun to make, we just don't really use Christmas stockings! Unsure I have also been considering the idea of mini stockings, but have to figure out a fabric to use, as the fur is too thick. Wink

Sorry about that [In reply to] Can't Post

So sorry. I read the notes in the Welcome post under the collecting board, and it said selling or linking to your eBay auction was fine. I'm sorry for not doing it right, but I tried reading through all the rules! Sorry about that! I guess I was confused or it wasn't worded right. Crazy
