Rachel's Stocking

This year I made a stocking for my niece's first Christmas. It was made in the same style as Isabel's one was, but having learned from making that one I've made some improvements. I made sure this one was a bit bigger and also I didn't use any fabric glue this time as I found it made messy marks and made the fabric go a bit hard in places. Also,this time the backing was made from a lovely, shiny teal quilted material that Louise gave me ( it was her old quilt) and this made a better base to sew on to than felt, which I used last time.

I'm extremely chuffed with this stocking, and I think Rachel and her parents are too!
