I made this for Leashhh for the christmas stocking swap.  I really like how it turned out.

Oh wow, was that all wet felted? Using a resist? I still need to try that method. And I'm guessing you added the blue with needles or are you actually that good? Very nicely done. Leashhh is lucky girl.

The stocking is completely wet felted.  The green, blue and purple are bits of silk fabric nuno felted onto the stocking.
