Claire Christmas Stocking

A few years ago I made personalised Christmas stockings for each person in my family reflecting each different personality. It was fun to do and started a new tradition (can you have a 'new' tradition?!). Anyway, it all gets very mysterious as, under cover of darkness, we each secretly pop a little gift in the stockings hung expectantly on our door handles.
So the exciting news at the end of last year was that my other brother David and his lovely girfriend Claire got engaged - so she's now his lovely fiance and Stephen and I gain a new sister - yay!
Of course this can only mean one thing - Claire needs a stocking. And I, of course, am happy to oblige.
It's made with felted fabric (see ipod post) and lined with lilac linen fabric with a tiny flower motif (you can't see it in the pic). Also trimmed with a dark pink silk binding.
We are all looking forward to a fab wedding in the south of France (mais oui!) and Claire is all excited about hanging her stocking on the door handle next Christmas. Congratulations David and Claire!
