I wanted this done by December first. I figured I could get it done by Thursday. I amazed myself and completed it ahead of schedule last night.
If you've been following along, this birdie was next in the instructions.
It was appliqued in place here on Santa's hand.
With the addition of the trim and sequins at the top, a plain backing, and a hanging loop, it's done. The empty slot at the top is for a name but the stocking is for our daughter, who will become "Mommy" next March so I will just leave it empty for now.
I still want to add a removable lining but that is not a part of the kit and can be done any time between now and Christmas Eve. With the weather outside being so frightful I am not about to go out today just to buy the material for the lining.
