Souvenir of Paris Finished!

I finished my first Blackbird Designs stocking today!! It wasn't too hard. Just don't look too closely because it's definitely not perfect!!

BBD Souvenir of Paris

This is the backing fabric I used. I thought it was perfect for it. I decided to use just a simple ribbon for a hanger.
