"Crazy Quilt" Christmas Stocking

Here's the finished stocking I was working on:

I think my favorite element is these little snowmen charms that I interspersed with red swirled, clear glass beads.

I also sewed on some tiny Christmas lights!

I backed it with red velvet and lined the inside with red satin. It didn' t go as well as expected, though, when it came time to sew all those layers together. (I really am a novice machine sewer!)
