Lavender Wings Santa - stitched on Floba in Sampler Threads, lenghtened his body, added shoes, blended greens for coat cuffs and bottom, added wood-like buttons to coat and star charm at top, stitched separate ornament over 1 on 28 ct linen "Listen for the Bells" in middle portion, attached with Kreinik gold thread. Made the bag, lined the top with calico print and cuffed it. Caron Collection Noel thread woven through and attached antique beads at the bottom so threads hang nicely. Potpourri added to bottom gives bulk and filled with cinnamon sticks.
