Naughty Nice Santa

Long time since I posted. Have been making ornaments and other dolls. In between that, I’ve been planning for next years shows and getting ready to purge a lot of stuff from my stash. It’s time to start focusing on what I really want to be working on and not be feeling overwhelmed with too much stuff around me. it’s an organized stash, but still feels like too much.

For this post, I’ll show you the last doll for the gallery show. We’re only allowed to bring in so much at a time and since it’s getting that much closer to Christmas, it just seemed like it would be better to limit what I make. I have another doll to post, I’ll do that tomorrow. So let’s have a look at Santa. I’ve made this Santa three times now and each time it seems to sell very quickly, so I hope that streak continues. ;o~ It’s a design by Sparkles N Spirit, called “Making a List Santa”.

For this one, I used flannel for his shirt and used a deep red stretch velvet for his pants and leggings. The ribbon for his suspenders are finished with wooded buttons. I had a cute little Merry Christmas charm, so why not. I added that to his belly area.


Santa’s hair is from Mohair Locks. They are really nice to use for hair but they are also a little fussy to work with. But the bonus is that they have some nice waves and curls to them.

Last year’s Santa, I made a list for Santa to hold under his arm. This time I decided to make a pouch to hang over his back and inside the pouch is a Naughty and Nice book that he will carry around with him to keep track of everyone.


This book measures 4” x 6”. I included pages where he can fill in the names of those who are naughty or nice. In the little pocket on the front, I added some Elf jokes to keep him happy at all times. Don’t you love that pencil, I found that in a little shop quite a while ago. She had the the most unique things like that, that nobody else seemed to. It came in handy for this Santa.



And finally his shoes. They are made with felt, lined with cotton and trimmed with a lovely heavy braid. The final touch is a nice big metal button. On his leggings there are gold metal buttons as on his shirt. Tomorrow I hope to post another doll and that’s all for this years gallery show.
