My new Santa
I have been making these Santas for about 10 years or so. My sister decided she needed a new one so I thought I would share it with yall. The fur is real mink (I collect old mink coats for my Santas) the beard is mohair from a ranch in California, the fabric is a red and gold brocade and his belt is one of my old ones cut down to fit. I paint his face and use a wood button for his nose. He sits in a chair and his feet hang over. I don't use a pattern because I have made him so many times I know how to cut the fabric. The Snowman is made from felt and is for my grandaughter's 2nd grade teacher. Today was a good day for making things since the weather turned cold and won't warm back up for a few days - today only 56 degrees but by Thursday it will be back to the 70's.
