A couple of months ago I was showing pictures of my other Santa’s to some friends. One of them said she would love to have one made for her husband who is Christmas crazy. She loved the Santa in the red coat, but I had to make sure that she was okay with it not being exactly the same, meaning fabrics, as I don’t like to make the same thing, the same way.
She was smitten with the coat more than anything because it does make a statement, so that part is the same, but I’ve used a different flannel. This is her or rather, her hubbies Santa for Christmas. Buttons are faux leather, but the pocket watch is real. The other Santa like this had bright red plaid flannel. I changed the dollar store ribbon on the tree and added a couple of silver birds.
The scarf is the same but with white lamp shade fringe instead. This Santa’s pants are made with flannel.
The pouch on his back is filled with some of Mother Natures trims and he also has a pair of ski’s, just in case he needs them.
I love his funky red glasses.
His boots are felt with leather soles. Two more dolls to do before the big day, so come back again to see what else is happening on my worktable.
