I embroidered the name of the recipient in goldwork on the back and applied Rudolph to the front.

A little bit of hand stitching and a lining and this is what the final stocking looked like….

Happy stitching everyone.

    well done!!! that’s a beautiful stocking, and Freys will treasure it for Christmases to come!
