    Gorgeous attention to detail and design. Your daughter must be thrilled. Beautiful “first project” which looks like it was done by a “seasoned pro”!

    Thank you everyone. Now it’s time to move on to my significant other’s stocking. His name is Tony. It should be a little easier and quicker than Kaelyn’s.

    Beautifully done! Love all the colors in it. Did you outline the letters first, to see where you wanted them placed? Or did you just wing it?

    Thank you. I drew out the design on a piece of paper first, then taped the pattern on to the backing. Then I traced the design on to the backing and stitched the beading. Finally, I attached to work to the stocking.
