Dashing through the snow...


He's dashing through the snow in his twig sleigh! Santa measures approximately 12½" tall. Made from aged osnaburg, he features a sculpted nose, lidded eyes, and a curly wool beard. His painted suit and hat are trimmed with tinsel. I stitched a pocket to his belly ... and tucked a little sugared gingerbread man in it { it looks like he got hungry on Christmas Eve, and took a bite out of the cookie! }. An antique candy container lantern is hung on his arm { it isn't permanently attached }. I put a bottle brush tree in his sack which is made from a vintage green wool Army blanket.
