2010 Xmas Stocking

My nephew, Bain Turnbull, was born in February so one of my projects was to create his Christmas stocking, which I did in time for his September christening in Gore.

I based the reindeer on the one I used for an advent calendar a few years ago and chose to make the stocking out of felt as then it would 'match' the one I made for his older brother in 2006, which features a Santa face (but at the moment I can't find the photo of it!)

The stocking is about 30cm long and is all hand stitched.  It is really only decorative as is not robust enough to be loaded up with gifts that are bulky or heavy.
