Santa Claus and Reindeer Finish


I have a finished stitching project to share.  You may remember this from a previous post {here} or, if  you follow me on Instagram you have already seen the completed picture!  

Here are a few details.  

This sweet little reindeer has been outlined with Stem Stitch and filled with Straight Stitch.  His holly leaf and berry collar is done with Satin Stitch.  I blended brown and a light tan colored floss for his fur:


and I used just the darker color for the outside of his legs and just lighter color for the insides of his legs:


Santa is done in rows of Split Stitch and French knots for all the embellishments on his suit.

Adorable! The reindeer and Santa's fuzzy details came out perfectly. I also like the little shine added to his belt buckle!

Thank you Jordan! That is blending filament combined with metallic thread :)
