Santa duo

Here's a pic of the two Santas I just completed. You may remember them since I made one last year and gave it as a gift. This is a fast, easy pattern from one of Susan Jill Hall's books. Luvs

Luvs....they are so cute! I like how their hair jets out from under their hats and the eyes....with the whispy eye lashes....anyone receiving one will be tickled pink!

Oh how sweet! I don't remember these from last year but then it's been a year and that's along time to try to remember.LOL Did you paint the hat red last year also?

I like how the wood grain shows on the beard and the different colored fur is nice. So glad you got these posted and they didn't get ruined in the rain.

I really don't remember these either, but they sure are cute so I should have. ha I love the little cutouts on the beard. Great detail. I like how the woodgrain shows thru as well. One of those is a keeper right? Great job! ~Anj

Love the expressions, the wood grain and the notches cut in the beard really are great ideas, the holly and mustache give it dimension. Very nice, very nice!

How are you going to use them?

Yes, I plan to keep one of them. The other one will probably be given away. I just added silk holly and berries, but the actual design had a wooden cutout. I was just too lazy to mess with going out and cutting any, and this gives even more dimension anyway! LOL I like this pattern since it is easy to cut out and a fast paint as well. Luvs
