Meet Wilhelm

Here’s a quick shot of my latest Santa, Wilhelm.  He insisted on wearing a vintage rhinestone brooch on his jacket, even though I auditioned fancy buttons and even a Saint Christopher medal.  They really do tell you what they want to wear.  Anyway, I’m hoping to list him on Etsy sometime next week.

From My Workbench...

I’m making another Santa doll in the Magnolia Pearl style, very shabby with coffee-stained vintage textiles and trims.  Here is his hooded jacket in progress.  I had a great time hand sewing lots of mismatched vintage mother-of-pearl buttons all around the edges, while listening to Christmas songs.
