Customize Your Hawaiian Quilt Christmas Stockings

It's something that you really don't see outside of Hawaii very often, let alone in Hawaii. Hand quilted Hawaiian Christmas stockings are a creative take on the Christmas icon and traditional Hawaiian quilting. Sometimes you'll see "embroidered" Hawaiian stockings that are done by machine. But they just don't have that "handmade" feel.

A few years ago, we started to offer our hand quilted stockings online. They were an instant classic and an immediate bright spot for our store. The little extra touches such as the piping edges, traditional Hawaiian quilt motifs and the "Mele Kalikimaka" embroidered on the cuff lent to the authentic look of the stocking.

Now we are offering an option - a blank cuff where you can add in your own name or saying. It is something that has been requested in the past and we loved the idea. It only makes sense that you would want to put your own name on your stocking. All the other elements are there except for the name so you still have that "Hawaiian" feeling.

We aren't going to be actually doing the custom embroidery but you should be able to do that at your local mall. We suggest looking at a hat store or a logowear store. Even some department stores have customizing services.

Mele Kalikimaka!
