    Old Santa

    Picked up bag of old quilt pieces already cut up at an antique shop. Decided to try making an old Santa. Didn't have a pattern, so I was just winging it! I think his hands/mittens are too big. Oh well. He will join all my other primitive Santas that I like to display every year! Thanks for looking!

    I think you did a good job. Quite clever.

    Your old Santa is very charming. I think it is great to be able to 'wing it'. Enjoy your new addition to your Santa collection. I love the old Santa charm. Great save for the old quilt.

    He is very cool. I have several, and they all have big mittens.

    He's adorable and I don't think his mittens look too big! Can't have tight fitting mittens and hold those reins and hand out all those presents! I'd love to make one but wouldn't know where to begin!

    I really like him, he turned out great
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very clever! I'm sure he will find his place amongst your other Santas.

    I love Santas, too, & have been collecting them for years. I really love the one you made -- he's perfect!

    So cute! I saw one the other day that made me want to try my hand at making one too. I dont have the nice old quilt pieces, but, I think I will enjoy it anyway.
