My August ornaments

The Santa stocking design is adapted from LA's Christmas Ornaments book #3428 produced by Kooler Design Studios. It's design 7 from the Littlest Stockings series, charted to be stitched on plastic canvas. I stitched it on 18 count Aida, made a few little changes to the shape, added a cuff, and backed it to turn it into a real little stocking. The finished stockings are just over an inch wide at the top, and a bit under 2 inches long.
