santa claus ornament WIP



Two WIP photos of a future pattern for a Santa Claus ornament. Last year a sweet customer of mine contacted me to ask for a pattern for Santa Claus, and at the time it wasn't possible to do more than just suggest ways for her to modify the Piper or Drummer pattern to be a Santa Claus (also Maid makes a nice Mrs Claus with some mods). After pondering other things the I could change and add, I got pretty excited and curious to try my own version and maybe develop a pattern. I started it last year but had to set it aside and recently picked it back up. Here we go.

I really love this little bearded guy, and I'm thinking of maybe doing a short pattern series of North Pole residents. If you've made the Twelve Days series, you can definitely make this Santa. Which I will be developing alongside another series I'm designing inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The plan is to release each one as it's done. I have so many ideas and so little time! It's my constant dilemma.

  2. I love him. Will he be available as a stand alone pattern or only as a part of a club series?

    1. Hello, pudgypooh, I release them as single patterns as I go and then offer the series at a discount as a bundle.

  6. I'm not big on Santa Claus-I prefer cardinals and woodland themes but I would make Mr and Mrs to go with the 12 days.
