Father Christmas & Sled

Here is this year's Santa doll, made for the ER Christmas Party & Auction. "Father Christmas & Sled" is designed by Dana Thompson (Country Harvest), copyright 1998.

I reduced the pattern to 83%, so he's about 20 inches tall. Not only did I prefer that smaller size, but it I also wanted to use a  sled I had on hand and needed the doll to be of a more appropriate scale.

His coat is made from a wool blend felt. His beard, hair, and mustache are Tibetan lamb. I used Timeless Treasures woven fabric for his body.

I like how he turned out, and hope the winner of the auction does, too.

Merry Christmas Deanna!

He really is one to treasure. I really love those buttons! The winner will be one lucky person.

Hi Deanna,

Excellant work on this Santa! He is really beautiful (or should I say handsome?) Either way, some very lucky person will be taking him home. How generous of you!

Have a Merry Christmas!
