Santa Claus pattern is now available!

Santa Claus, the first pattern in my new 'Twas the Night Ornament Series, is now available! These ornaments are inspired by Clement C. Moore's 1823 poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas, better known as The Night Before Christmas. I love the vintage look evoked by the sparkly sequins and beads.

The 20 page detailed PDF pattern comes with a 2nd pattern sheet that has 20 years worth of dates for the back of the ornament, if you are like me and appreciate the years written on your ornaments.

These four sparkly samples were made using Benzie Design's wonderful wool-blend felts, glass seed beads, and sequins. Such great quality! I really enjoyed working with them, and highly recommend them for yours. I'll be posting detailed color guides for these samples, and yes, Benzie Design will be offering kits for you made up with these colors! Yay! Thank you, wonderful Benzie folks! Stay tuned for more information on that.

Red and white is such a classic and lovely combo for your Santas, but don't feel like you have to stick with that! He looks smashing in all kinds of color combos.

You guys know tiny things are my jam, so I especially love the miniscule stocking with candy cane and jingle bell ornament. The jingle bell makes a little cheerful sound whenever it's moved. Choose to make either a Christmas tree stocking or a snowman stocking. Both designs are included in the pattern.

Just like my Twelve Days Ornament Series, these ornaments also utilize Sulky Stick 'n Stitch to make the embroidery, beading, and pattern assembly a snap. More ornaments are to follow in this series, so stay tuned. I do not have a release date for the next pattern, but you can be sure you will see updates and posts right here and on my other channels.

WHERE TO BUY: These PDF patterns are only available in my Etsy shop for instant download. There's a detailed list of materials needed in the listing in the photos but I'm always happy to answer questions! Just shoot me a convo via

Lots more information about this series can be found on this dedicated resource page. I'll be updating that page constantly as this series develops. Now on to pattern no. 2...
