The Reindeer in His Finery
My little reindeer is now finished - all dressed up for the big day. Notice the Swarovski crystals on the tips of the antler points. The under-blanket is simple fleece with a blanket stitch embroidered border. The top blanket, though, is silk. It's padded and lined and also decorated with silk applique. I edged each silk applique piece with tiny glass seed beads. There are also seed beads around the edge of the silk blanket, and a small jingle bell hangs from each point. I think he's feeling quite proud!
