Santa

Santa measures 28 inches tall from the top of his head to the tips of his toes. I made him using canvas, flannel, acrylic paints and I stained him using walnut ink, coffee, tea with a little cinnamon and clove essential oil in my staining mixture. I needlefelted raw flax fiber for his beard. His tag is distressed paper, fabric and has two vintage buttons and NOEL stamped onto the tag. His tree is tied to his arm. If you want to remove the tree it can be easily untied or clip the twine that is holding him. This Santa will hang or sit.
Santa is designed and handcrafted by me. Signed and dated.
Santa is also available as a pattern (Santa and his Gingerbread) and has a new Embellishment Pattern for new additions I made to the original pattern.

Each Charlie Clown is individually made by me and even though I worked from my pattern, my dolls always seem to take on a different expression when I paint their faces :D  Two look happy, one looks exasperated and the last one went pirate LOL.

I painted her with acrylic paints and stained her with Walnut Ink. Her jumper is cotton and her little sweater is made from an antique lace fabric.

PATTERN INFO: I named her Ollie because she is made from my Mr. Ollie pattern with body painted a muted white. Same coat pattern and jumper as Mr. Ollie. The differences are I didn't add the shoes and I cut the coat lapels off more rounded rather than square. I also eliminated the scarf. I painted the nose on rather than adding a sewn-on nose. I painted her eyes more in the lines of Bunny Boo Hiss.
