    Santa's little helpers!

    Fell in love with these guys this fall. Now they're everywhere in my house. They take about half an hour, max, to make. There are instructions everywhere on the web. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

    Very cute. They remind me of the little “Artisians” characters, that they sold in the seventies in Washington state.

    I love them, too. I made some small ornament ones and a larger one with a sock. They are adorable.

    I made little tiny ones as ornaments last year for my quilt group.
    I made them out of sewing fabrics. I got a wooden ball with a face
    on them and drew up my own pattern for a red felt hat. some of
    the faces I drew on myself. I've seen them in many colors and
    different fabrics. They are addictive. I love your little guys. You
    can keep them up all year. Are you making summer ones in floral
    fabrics?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    for mine, i just made a 4" circle gathered it up and added stuffing. glued the head on and a small peice of fake fur for the beard. cut the back with a knife,and pull it apart. it will look more natural that way. make a half circle hat. I stuffed it a bit and glued it on. I hope that helps people who are looking for instructions. there's always youtube.
