a LOT like Christmas!
ohhhhh nooooo, snoooooow!
Of course, this dusting won’t last, but, if we’re going to have snow we might as well have Santa, too!
“ho, ho, ho!”
I started this particular Claus in June…. yes, June. I meant to have him completed for Christmas in July, but, well, we didn’t have any snow in July, in fact the weather was so fabulous this summer that I hardly ever came indoors.
ticking stripe stocking
I punched Santa in a sort of brownish~pinkish color ~ Valdani JP6, Muddy Pots, and gave him a functional stocking and some rusty bells. He measures about 13″ high x about 16″ long including the rocker.
The stocking can be removed.
another little pocket!
I backed him with the same ticking I used to cover the rocker which is a slice of antique wood bowl I salvaged. The decorative ends are vintage clock feet.
Santa loves to rock~n~…..
…roll! He’s pretty excited about the snow.
How about you guys, Ellis and Otis? Are you ready for winter?
“yep, ready” ~ellis
“Yep, all snug here” ~the oatbran
How about you Lilly?
“what? did you say winter???” ~lilly-kins
Any thoughts you’d like to share about winter or snow, Lilly?
“you bet i have some thoughts, but this blog is rated g. wake me when it’s spring” ~lilly
Maybe you’d like to make your own Santa? Here’s a sketch….
Please excuse the scribbles, as I said this is just a sketch. You should be able to drag the drawing to your desktop and print from there. Please, feel free to share this pattern with others, but please do not copy the pattern for mass production, nor make more than 10 finishes from this pattern ~ thanks! I like to change the shape of the hat and the length of Santa’s coat for each piece I make, you’re welcome to make additions or deletions as you’d like, too.
I’ll let you know when I list this Claus on etsy, if you’re interested.
Stay warm and ho, ho, ho!
