Here is the prototype for the new prim Santas I’m making. He is coffee and vanilla stained (smells good!) and embellished with old, unmatched mother of pearl buttons. His coat and hat are made from a vintage chenille bedspread I bought at a local antique store. The crocheted doily and trim are also antique store finds. I sewed an old skeleton key to the doily. The straggly tassel on his hat was in the bottom of an old tin of military and other buttons my MIL found for me down in Key West. The fabric for his trousers is from my mom’s old stash. The small Bible on his lap is an antique EBAY purchase. This ol’ boy will go to my sister, Susie, for her birthday next week.
