Work in Progress Wednesday

This little project has been in the works for a while, but I've just resurrected it. At my place of employment, in our office area we have a mural of a pier and ocean complete with parrott and sailboat. During the CHRISTmas season, we put up a beautiful tree adorned with seashells and nautical themed ornaments. This year, I'm hoping to have a stocking for each of us...in theme, of course!
This is the first and very rough "draft" It has not yet had the back added, thus the rough edges. It is made of felt, the palm fronds at the top will be relocated to the fold-down white top of the stocking. when it is added. I'm thinking of adding just a very few pom-pons or sequins to the fronds to simulate ornaments, but am pretty much undecided on that one still. Every element will be stitched (simple running stitch) but is currently put together with FabricTac.

As I didn't have a pattern at all, I'm doubtful as to the shape of it. I would very much like any input or suggestions! Creative criticism is okay, I can take it! I think. ha.

Well, I think they will be adorable. I agree glitter and sequins might be just the "pop" it would need.

I look forward to seeing the results!
