Three New Christmas Stockings- Part 2 of ?

Laying out red fiber from a 'mixed domestic wool' batt...


                                 ...and leftover white pre-felt from an earlier project.



                                    'Writing' my daughter's name in green pencil roving...



                                          ...and adding a pre-felt hanging loop.



                             Embellished pre-felt squares are applied to the back side...



                                      ...and then to the front (at the toe and heel).



                                                   Mid-way through felting...

                              ...the project is cut open and the resist is removed.


                                       Rolling the felt in an 'unnatural orientation'...

                                            ...helps to flatten the resist seams.



                                              Fulling the nearly finished project.



                                                The completed stocking (front)...



                                                                ...and back...



                                    ...and as part of our Christmas-time 'line-up'! :)    



                           Next time: a hirsute stocking made with 84% Karakul wool.
