My first handmade mini x'mas stocking

This is my first handmade mini stocking. I hand sew everything because I'm lazy to use my sewing machine but I'll use it next time it's faster. I used small white mesh to make a ruffle on top then added a red ribbon. I really love how it turned out except the big sequins with beads I'm not happy with it. TFL!
