This stocking is made from 100% cotton, unbleached calico, and printed with your name of choice.
Big enough for a good stash of presents, this stocking comes with a hanging loop, so you can hang it on the mantlepiece if you're lucky enough to have one, or to hang from the end of a bed ready to be stuffed with satsumas, Toblerone and any other traditional gifts Santa might bring to your house this year!
The red circle on this stocking is made up of some of my favourite Christmas carol words - "be near me lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay, close by me forever".
It's something that I pray my kids would sing and understand as they grow up. This is a special design for me, and another reminder of the best Christmas present ever - Jesus being near us, and He is always with us, close by us, forever.
The text is printed in red, flock vinyl, which is soft and velvety, with some Christmassy sprigs of green surrounding it. Your name of choice will be printed inside the circle in gold, glitter vinyl, and this stocking will last you for years to come.
Every stocking is sewn and printed by me, Jenny, in London, and will be ready for posting out to you before the end of November, in plenty of time for Christmas.
Measurements - 38cm x 34 cm, made from 100% unbleached calico cotton, with a cotton twill tape hanging loop.
Meet the Maker
Grizzli Bear is a small company based in London, run by Jenny (wife to 1, mum to 2). She makes and designs zip pouches, with Bible verses and Christian encouragements printed on them in colourful flock. Grizzli Bear is also the home of the Alphabet Bible Flashcards, and some lovely prints too. Please allow 1-2 weeks for items to be made before shipping, but orders will often be sent out faster than this.
We are so busy these days, and sometimes quiet times just don't happen. I mean, with 2 little kids around my ankles asking for snacks every 10 minutes, there's not a lot of time for Bible reading! So, I made these pouches so that whatever you use them for during your day, you will have a quick reminder of your favourite Bible verse or sentiment, and it can really allow God to speak to you in the busyness of life. I now have a pouch for pretty much anything, a pencil case, a couple in my changing bag for the kids, one for snacks, one for my paintbrushes and pens, one filled with small toys and emergency books for when I'm out and about with the boys and get stuck in traffic on the bus or the doctor is running late. Really, they can be used for anything, and make great presents too.
Grizzli Bear started as an exclusively nappy-bag-organising business, making zip pouches in all sorts of materials and designs, but meant for mums and dads to organise their changing bags. However, things move on, and now they are used for all sorts, all over the world! When you need your makeup, pens and a notebook, a spare set of clothes for your toddler or indeed nappies and wipes, these pouches will remind you that you are so loved, treasured and precious to our Creator God.
There are a couple of personalised pouches in my shop too, where you can get a pouch with your choice of name printed on. Each name will be hand lettered by Jenny, so you will end up with a pouch that is unique and personal to you.
All the pouches are made from 100% cotton canvas, with all new designs being made with organic cotton, hence the higher price point for some and not others. I will be moving to all organic soon! Orders are wrapped in tissue paper and sent in gorgeous thick paper envelopes with a hand-written thank you card.
