I saw this tutorial on Lee Hill Primitives blog and I knew it was the one for me. I just had to make one for myself and a few extras for fun. I sewed up the bag and grunged it with coffee and cinnamon. Then I fashioned the Santa stump doll out of muslin, wool, and some thick brown fabric. You can take him out after the holidays and put whatever else you want in the pocket year round. I have never sewn by hand much and the workmanship is not professional but I think he turned out dang cute. The last giveaway I had was so much fun that I wanted to have another one! I am giving this one away (along with a small candle and chocolates) on Nov. 26th!!! Just in time to start decorating for Christmas. Ho Ho Ho. Just follow me ~ Tell me one of your most favorite Christmas traditions ~ Post the giveaway in your sidebar if you like (that's always nice). Thanks so much for all your visits. I enjoy getting to know everyone.
This last picture is fuzzy for some reason, but you get the idea.
