~Textured Victorian Stocking, In the Hoop~
Since I was in high school I always believed I was born in the wrong time period. Don’t get me wrong, I love my technology, electricity and running water. But the Victorians knew how to dress! Their cinched tiny waist, their full romantic hair and those lovely detailed shoes. I have always had a passion for the Victorians and their attire and wanted to create an In the Hoop Textured Victorian Stocking for that reason! Please welcome the newest In the Hoop project!
This Textured Victorian Stocking has so many details – you will love all the learning lessons. There are tons of tricks too in order to make this sweet little stocking come to life. Please, take a closer look at it with me and see all the details.

When did I create the In the Hoop Textured Victorian Stocking?
Originally this was created for the 2015 In the Hoop Club. The club was fun and lasted about 2-1/2 years between stores and on-line customers. The downside of the club was a lot of work went into it and only a handful of friends could stitch the designs. Now I can create things as I want and not set to deadlines and everyone has the opportunity to purchase them!
How to you make it?
Just like any In the Hoop project there are specific steps you must follow and if you do the project will come to life with little to no effort. The beauty of In the Hoop projects are the accuracy. If you hoop your stabilizer and place the materials down at the time you are told to then all will work out great! This project even has a video. Please remember the video references the old In the Hoop Club but it still is very informative and shows you step by step how to make the In the Hoop Textured Victorian Stocking.
