Christmas Stocking

My hubby bought me this beautiful sewing machine that I just couldn't wait to use. Evey year Rich's family does a stocking exchange. They choose names and fill a Christmas stocking for whoever they choose. This year I got Rich's cousin Kim . Kim owns, rides and loves horses. So, I decided to make her stocking and embroider her name on the front. I found a very pretty horse fabric and got to work.

The fabric and beginning stages.

All cut out and ready to sew.

Here is the name embroidery I did on the cuff.

The final stocking !
