Cute Christmas Stockings

I made a few mini Christmas stockings for either gifts or decorations. I have to confess that these started a little gifts for friends but I couldn't part with them ; (

The main body is made from contrasting felt, machine stitched then hand-stitched with blanket stittch. The snowflake and holly decoration are felt with a variety of beads and buttons for added texture and interest.
The little reindeer motifs are from Paperchase (I bought them last year but they still do them - find them here) and I simply added these with a hidden stitch or two to finish them off. The loop is made with a length of felt secured with a large button.

I am looking forward to finding some small sewing related gifts from Santa inside these babies on the 25th December!

Have you made anything festive for Christmas this year?
