I got this really great doll book from Linda, who made a paperdoll book called "Not Your Mother's Paper Dolls".
I decided I would make some Christmas cards from them. I made this Father Christmas below but instead of using paper, I used fabric. I also got some practice in on french knots! I think the one thing I would do differently if I could would to not define the lower part of his eye. When I did this, I was almost done and then could not turn back. Other than this, I am pretty happy with the way he turned out. His beard is made of angelina fibers. Also, it's funny how you find cheap things and think I don't have a use for this now but maybe later. I got this glitter snow stuff from Joann's really cheap and I just used this to define the fur. But, it is a hazard to buy things that you think you might use later as well. I know we all have a few boxes of "Future Uses." You can double click for more detail on Mr. Santa. My next project is a gingerbread man...but I am trying to figure out how to do a good cookie sheet. So, if anyone has any ideas..let me know. I tried tin foil but I don't like how it looks. I am thinking I might use a piece of felt or draw it.
