I made this for my partner in Round 9 of the Christmas Stocking Swap.  It is the swap item I am most proud of to date, so I hope she likes it.  Smiley



Since my partner had a lot of natural elements posted to her Pinterest, I chose a Woodlands theme for the stocking.  The appliqus are made of everyday craft felt sheets, and needle-felted onto a slightly higher-quality felt that was cut from a bolt.  Originally, I wanted it to be more of a "Winter Woodlands" theme, but I felt that the white felt was too bright and clashed with the other colors, so I opted to sew on clear and white opaque beads to connote the idea of snow.  Although they look a little dull in the photo, they add a nice touch of sparkle in person.  I didn't take a picture of the back, but it features my partner's name cut out in red felt letters, with an "in-line" of beads sewn down the centers of the letters.  It kinda ended up looking like marquee letters a little.   Tongue
