I have just finished making this Santa that will be auctioned off for my Decorative Painting Chapter http://northwestfloridaseaoats.blogspot.com/. He is made with a beautiful red jacquard fabric with gold threads running through it. His beard and hair are made from real mohair (I actually buy this unwashed and boy does it stink when you wash it - smells like lanolin) and his fur is mink from an old mink stole. He is weighted to sit in a small chair or on a table. His face is handpainted and he is wearing glasses. He is 25" long, 15" high when sitting. I have been making this Santa for about fourteen years and just love him. One of these days I will actually make one for myself and keep him. I often make him from other fabrics such as moire and in other colors - pinks, blues, greens, etc.
