Destiny's stocking is done, it turned out so pretty. I have one last seam treatment to share with you. This piece of lace was given to me by Susan, I wanted to add to it so I used 2 strands of variegated pearl cotton, I don't remember where I got it though. In between each oval are little flower sequins topped with a small faux pearl. I love these little sequins, Susan shared her stash with me when she and Paul visited last month and these were in there mix.

Here it is.....................
The front. After sewing it together and lining the stocking I topped it off with this pretty piece of lace, (also from Susan) which has the openings in the top for ribbon to be threaded through, so I put a 1/16 inch wide piece of burgundy there and it matches the wide ribbon I used for the hanger, who knew?
