Vintage Christmas

I started these a long time ago but just finished them. They are about 6″ high, and are made of vintage Santa and Christmas images (copyright free) I found on Pinterest.

I printed them onto cotton canvas, then stitched them with a machine to backs out of red ticking, large enough to allow them to be stuffed. Once stuffed with batting and dry beans at the bottom to weight them down, I stitched them shut by hand and trimmed everything with a pinking shears.

Next year, I’m including reindeer and many other Santa images, and will line them up on the mantel! Fun.
