Since Layla doesn't know any better (yet) she tends to miss out on getting new things at times. As much as I do sew for her, if James wants something sewn for him, he wants it now! So Layla tends to get the 2nd version of things I make (sometimes a few months later).
In this case, James saw me preparing the Christmas Stockings and wanted the first version....... so here it is......
Not too happy with how the fabric shows through in this picture. It is not as bad in real life though, so I think I will live with it.
Off to work on Layla's stocking now.... after all, I don't have a few months to complete this version.
