 Christmas Stockings aren't just for "people" any more!  LOL!  We have a new special Grandpuppy and her name is Dakota!

YEP...

you guessed it...

she needed an Extra Special Christmas Stocking to hang over the fireplace...just for HER! 

I ask you...how else can you expect Santa to find her amongst all the other Super Cute puppies this year?

I digress...

I used a Burlap fabric from Hobby Lobby to cut the Body (both front and back) of the stocking out of...

it actually has a gold shimmery sparkle to it and it's Super CUTE!  

I fused a piece of fleece to the backside of the stocking front BEFORE I loaded it onto my Embroidery Machine

so it could stitch out this fabulous Puppy Girl Applique from Munchkyms design with NO puckers or pulls in the fabric!

Meanwhile...here is a Close Up of the actual applique for you to check out...

Be sure to check out my Tools of the Trade at the Bottom of this blog post to find the details of where to purchase this oh so cute design!  

 Now...let's talk about the Cuff...

I stitched Sweet Dakota's name on the cuff panel first too...

BEFORE I sewed the cuff to the top of the stocking for ease of construction.

I used the Barnyard Font from I2S (link listed below also). 

You will never be disapointed with any of the well digitized fonts from I2S...

believe me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE them ALL!

Check out the close up of the Name on the Cuff below...

isn't it just FABULOUS?

Just a heads up...

I also fused a piece of fleece to the backside of the stocking cuff BEFORE I stitched Dakota's name on it...

The Fusible Fleece serves not only as a firm stabilizer but also gives the stocking and cuff 

extra body...especially since I used the shimmery burlap.

If you have never tried using fusible fleece in a Stocking or Stocking Cuff...

be sure to give it a try...you'll LOVE the results!

Now...let's make a Special Stocking for all our precious pups!
