Instead I decided to make him a Christmas stocking to hang out on Christmas Eve. To be honest I did think the boy was a little young for a visit from Father Christmas, but I've swept my scrooge-like tendencies aside.

But knitting is not my thing and my inexpert forays into crochet are certainly not equal to getting a stocking completed prior to Christmas Eve.

With my recent applique addiction showing no signs of abating, I decided to adorn the big wooly sock with a scandi-inspired reindeer silhouette.
I wasn't sure how fray-proof the wool would be so I lined the stocking with some festive spotty fabric...
