To be honest, I was asked to do this for Christmas 2014 and I didn't have time. Tina asked me again MONTHS ago and I just never got to it. I was SUPPOSED to do it while on vacation over Thanksgiving, but it never happened because I was working on an enormous blanket for a baby shower present. I started this over the weekend, and finished the last stitch about 12:15 this morning. Christmas is in HOW many days? Whoops.
I was just told it had to fit a 3ft bone for a very spoiled German Shepherd. I THINK it's big enough. That's yard-stick for scale. Again. That is a YARD STICK!. It's 30inches long. The blue stocking is mine.
Testing out placement of the appliques.
This was the version I ended up with.
Not the one some friends recommended.
Starting the whip-stitching of the appliques.
Please tell me that you can see that the holly is made out of dog bones.
The main side
In case someone with the initial D tries to take over this stocking.
I don't believe in dinky Christmas stockings.
I am so looking forward to sleeping more than 6 hours a night here soon.
When is Christmas break?
It's RUFF to be doing this so late.
