Next the Reindeer Needs Her Raiment

Wow!  This was quite a needle felting task - seven hours of poke, poke, poke.  But it was worth it because I think she turned out pretty cute.

Now I need to decorate her.  I'm planning Swarovski red and green crystals topping the tips of her antlers, a bow with bell for her neck, and a gorgeous beaded and embroidered blanket in red, white, and gold.  I'd like to also add leg wraps but I'm in a bit of a quandry as to what to make them from.

The only thing I wish I had done differently was to make her antlers a bit more delicate.  Next time...  Also, as a potential improvement, next time I'll try wrapping the armature with wool felt and see if the felting sticks better to it.
