I decided I wanted to make an applique Rudolph and found this one at Stitches of Love. I decided to use leather for the head of the reindeer so I didn't have to worry about the green fabric showing through the head. I'm trying to stick to a color scheme of red, cream, green and a bit of brown. I also used leather for his antlers. I love the rough effect it gives.
If he's Rudolph he has to have a big red nose!
I fussy cut a green with gold batik for the holly at the top of the reindeer.
