A little stocking finish

So I think this officially qualifies as my first finish for 2014!

The woman I made this quilt for contacted me and wanted a matching Christmas stocking for her sweet little girl.

I had this fun pattern in the Amanda Murphy book Modern Holiday. It went together very quickly (my daughter deemed it cool as I was putting the patchwork together!).  And the quilting was fun. Here's the back of the stocking, I duplicated the quilting from the front on the back even though there was no patchwork.

I hand embroidered the name with the same font as her quilt.

And of course hung it on our fireplace for photos! :)

Now this little cutie is ready to help a cute little one usher in her 2nd Christmas next December!

It looks fantastic! What a great job you did? Did you use a pattern, I forget? Also, I can't believe that's hand embroidery - it's beautifully done!

And, being S-approved, well, what more do you want???? o:)

That stocking is so cute! I love the non-traditional orange and aqua.
