TIME FOR SANTA DOLLS


Old World Father Christmas by Bethann Scott


Father Christmas
It's that time of year, a time to sew Santa Claus Dolls for the Christmas Holiday Season. I find that making these dolls brings a cheerful spirit. His wool coat and hood are made using wool in an evergreen color. He holds a jointed teddy bear, a twig wreath, a rustic lantern and a fabric wrapped package.
I will be making about 6 of these dolls and then I want to sew an angel or two.

MEDIEVAL WITCH WITH CROW

All the hard work is completed and she now stands finished holding her crow.
  I made her a black leather hat that is unlined for a little relaxed fit around her head. The leather is not an easy task to secure, sew to her head. A black Crow is perched on her right hand.

 These are my first pair of split drawers. Since her dress is very form fitting, I needed to sew her a pair of drawers that had a drop waist so there wouldn't be such bulk showing under her satin gown. Her split drawers are made using black satin, french seams and embellished with black lace.

 I made her leather lace up boots and secured her to a doll stand.
