Avery's Christmas Stocking

 I brought everything to make a Christmas stocking for Avery 
that matched the ones I made for his mom and dad. 
 It is a pattern by Fiber Works, but not the fox.  
I wanted his stocking to have a fox on it.  
His red hair always make me think of foxes.  
So I did what I always do and took to the internet. 
 I LOVE using coloring pages to find unique things to applique.  
That's how I found the fox I wanted to use. 
 I did have to enlarge him though to make him fit the stocking as these are really BIG.

You can see in this photo the progress.  
I cut out the stocking front and back.  
I used Steam-a-Seam Lite 2 to fuse the fox, name and snowflake down. 
 I free motion stitched around all of it using black thread, except for the snowflake, I used white.  
Then I layered it with batting and quilted 1" squares using monofiliment thread. 

I used this cute Christmas mouse fabric for the lining.

This is how it finished.
I love how it turned out!
Fun fact, the half of the snowflake on Avery's stocking
 is the other half of the one I used on him mama's stocking!

It was Avery approved!

Here are all three hanging together.

I was so happy that I was able to get this done in the camper!

I am really so pleased with how they have all turned out.

I am thinking this may be my last complete project for 2020.
I am going to a friend's house for the weekend and we will be sewing up a storm!
Maybe I will get that first baby quilt top finished!!!

the stockings are super cute!! I love the fox and Avery's red hair ( Lili and I have a thing for red hair since we have it too!)

I love this; your idea, method and process all combined to work for one lovely finish. Avery is adorable posing with his stocking, it could be great measuring stick to record his growth year to year!
