Today as I worked on this rustic stocking made of “slave” fabric (osnaburg was used for slave clothing), I thought….how appropriate, since we were all slaves to sin. Then God sent his Son who paid the price for our freedom….all we have to do is accept it!
Not a traditional stocking….The original plan was to use navy/cream ticking. I had cut out the fabric and was getting ready to sew the word patches onto it…but it just didn’t look right. I looked around the studio to see what I could use. Here is what I came up with:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
Have a blessed evening!
