JN313 • Gingerbread Fairy Mouse Stocking & Embellishments

Last year the gingerbread ornament mice asked for a stocking to snuggle inside while hanging on the tree.  Sugarplum Fairy Mouse uses hers to rest between performances!  This little stocking is just 2 ½” tall and features flowers and fancy snowflakes.  A lovely fairy is adding the finishing touches to a decorated tree with the help of a little gray mouse wearing a pink ribbon. 

Quick to stitch and easy to finish, the stocking is backed with tan felt and trimmed with a snippet of white silk ribbon and a gold jingle bell.  Stuff the stocking up to the cuff line, then sit the mouse inside.  Add a few tiny pins to secure and the mouse is ready to sit in the stocking and still hang by her tail. 

Stitched on 32 CT Zweigart Ant. Almond Belfast Linen or 32 CT Picture This Plus Gingerbread Linen with DMC and Kreinik 202HL #4 Braid. 
Design area is 2 ½” X 2 ½”.

Included are 2 colors of beads, tan felt, silk ribbon and a jingle bell plus complete finishing instructions.  Stitcher will need to supply lightweight fusible interfacing, stuffing and sequin pins or straight pins to secure the mouse.
