If there's ever a year to make a Patriotic Santa, this is it (whatever your politics may be). So I've pulled out some fabrics in reds and blues, stripes and stars. I'm not sure yet what combination I'll use, but I've got quite a stash from which to choose.
I've sewn and stuffed a basic pancake doll, and just finished a dimensional nose that I'll ladder stitch to the face. This was not the easiest bit to turn right side out and stuff!
