Christmas Stocking for Fergus

Another tick on my to-do list for 2012 - the stocking for my brother's third son, Fergus Turnbull - this is his first Christmas...
Fergus and family are coming for a pre-xmas bbq on Sunday evening
so he will be able to take the stocking home with him!

Initial stages - I put most of it together last Sunday night.
Felt, completely hand-stitched, used a blanket stitch for most of it,
attached buttons and ricrac.

Decided on a gingerbread man to complement the
stockings made for Fergus' big brothers (see below).

  1. Those stocking are treasures to be kept over the growing years,used many times, stitched with love. I do like the "heel" in another shade. Greetings from Jean
