Christmas stocking Santa is here

My first stocking of the year is finished! One down and many to go, I have so many different one's I want to make. Four others are in the works.

Whilst I was in the process of making this one I wasn't really convinced about the design. Now it's all together and complete I'm very happy with it. The santa is appliqued on antique Italian hemp linen. I used a miss of cotton and felt for the applique.

I bought quite a lot of fabrics recently to use for Christmas. Many are not Christmas fabrics but I like the colour combinations. I didn't find many Chrissy fabrics which grab me this year!
