My Santa's are out of their boxes and so proudly displayed. These are a few of the Santa's I've made over the years....labors of love.
The one dressed in the black, navy and green fabric is made from my Fathers old bathrobe. My Mother made him the robe back in the 50's (do we want to talk vintage?) and he wore it up until the day he passed in 2002 at 92! WOW...can you believe it held up to the wear and tear? Guess he didn't wear it everyday.......
I treasured the fabric and wanted to make something that would be around for years to come...so, I chose a Santa!
I didn't make the heads on any of them, just the bodies and clothing. I just adore looking at them and remembering when???????
The one dressed in the checked wool fabric is one of my husbands old sport coats! I like to recycle...huh?
The other two are just fabrics that were hanging around and I thought would be a nice addition to my collection. Burgandy little man was my first...
Back to decorating..... do I see the light at the end of the tunnel? YEP!
