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!
