Packed & Almost Ready is my first finish for 2013. This is a great Santa that was fun to stitch…. much thread/fiber variety, some stitch variety, strange fabric. My guy is Mona-Santa since I haven’t been able to add eyebrows that I like. The instructions suggest brushing the beard and fur but I will wait to do that until I decided how to finish it — stand up, pillow, framed ?????
The directions were quite good. This piece has a couple of minor errors and the photo is not exactly the same as the directions. So…. if you will be stitching this … purchase 2 cards of Alpaca 18-AL51, don’t forget the pompom on the hat and the treasure for the pull toy.
