I just finished a new Santa doll. I wasn't sure how I was going to accessorize him until I found a little basket (in my stash) trimmed in the same colors he is wearing, mauve and grey. I glued in some small shells, some purchased and a few gathered from the beach in Ocean City, NJ. The plastic shell-shaped buttons on his jacket were another serendipitous find, again from my stash. I had forgotten I had them. I embroidered the open edges of his jacket with the up and down buttonhole stitch.
