Sewing with a Christmas theme today and I wanted a goldwork Christmas reindeer to go onto a Christmas stocking. As always, padding is everything. Two layers of thick felt were used around the head area and a single layer for the neck, This was then covered in a thin felt to round off the edges. The head was then surrounded in gold pearl purl and the chin was highlighted with backstitch.
As this is for the front of a child’s stocking, the reindeer had to be Rudolph, so I added more padding and covered in red chipping. Not sure how I will make the eye yet, I think I will leave that till nearer the end.
Thanks for popping in, happy stitching everyone.
