Weeeeeeeeeeeeeell, this was different!
It's the first time I've EVER made anything like this!
You can find Jennifer Grace's Pattern for him HERE
For some reason, (probably its cuteness!) I felt inspired and set off to buy some felt and have a play to see if I could actually re-create it!
And it worked!!! LOL, what a hoot!
The instructions were very easy to follow - a big plus for a person who doesn't 'do' instructions well!
I'm so proud of him! And still in a way in disbelief that I made it to the end and this little santa looks pretty good! Bonus!
I took some pics along the way...
All cut out and ready to go....
I did glue some things in place so they wouldn't move, then stitched.
Some hand stitching...and luckily my sewing machine did manage to get through the layers of felt as well! I actually added a strip of white along the bottom of his hat. And cut out a buckle shape from a scrap of black suede.
LOL, after having a go at making 'tassels' earlier this week, I thought I'd have a go at a pom-pom... weeeell, it didn't quite work out as I thought but managed to nip and tuck it here and there, and its kinda presentable!
I did fill it with soft fibre stuffing in the top 3/4's, and then a bag of rice in the bottom to anchor it
Cute little fellow!!
