Christmas Stocking From Placemat, #2



I suppose this one dollar investment was really more of a tapestry wall hanging--I thought it would be fun to feature the snowman on a stocking.


It's made in the same way as the blue snowman stocking, using a stocking shaped window to choose the placement. Before stitching the front and back together, I added an applique 'toe' and 'heel from the scraps, turning under the applique edges and stitching them down with a narrow, long zigzag. The back is cut from a blue piece from my stash, and the cuff and loop are made with a scrap from my 'fancy fabrics' box--I like the shiny taffeta with the textured tapestry. The two white tassels didn't seem to work as trim, so I'll save them for another project!
