Santa Christmas Decoration

Hello everyone,

I hope you’ve all had a lovely time if you celebrate Christmas. I finished stitching this Santa decoration just in time to add it to my Daughter’s Christmas presents but didn’t have time to share it here. This Santa is one of a set of six in a pack by Design Works. I’ll definitely be making the others when I get time. It’s nice to stitch on plastic canvas sometimes isn’t it? I struggled to decide on the colour of felt backing and ribbon but a couple of crafting friends offered advice and I went with their choices in the end.


Best wishes to all for the New Year. Hasn’t 2017 come around quickly?

    Santa is lovely and the ribbon and backing are perfect. I am sure your daughter was thrilled with him. If you start now you may just get the others completed for Christmas 2017😉 Sorry only joking I know how prolific you are with cross stitch projects.
