Santa's with Dangling Legs

I have had these two Santa bodies half finished for over 9 months, with a little free time, they have been completed.  The original pattern had been "put away" therefore a modified version was created.  The little doll shoes have been weighted, so that they dangle nicely over the edge of a bench or shelf.  What do you think of their string/jute legs? Each Santa is holding a toy ready to give to the children.  They measure 24cm seating, and approx 50 cm in total height

Next on my list was a felt reindeer, he has black cross stitches across the back of his body, and a hand sculpted nose,  Rusty jingle bells are on his stick antlers, and can you see the little red cardinal bird perched on the tip of his antler?  A big tartan bow around his neck completes him

It is great to start on my Christmas sewing, and having a friend in the studio with me is the best motivation

I wonder what we will play with tomorrow


  1. Hi,
    Is there a pattern for the santa and reindeer? They are both darling and I would love to make them.
    Thanks in advance,

      The Santa is a Sweet Dreams pattern, at the moment I cannot find the name of the pattern as their website is down for maintenance. Will let you know soon.

  2. Thanks a lot Judy.
    Hope you have a wonderful Holiday!
