Santa Dancing!




Well, I decided to be a good little girl today and complete my Santa. I turned him into a flat fold and now I will get to enjoy him prior to Christmas. Poor Santa had been languishing in the finished box. That could have put me on the naughty list-LOL I think he turned out pretty good. I am more pleased with this flat fold than my Thanks flat fold. It just came together better and looks neater, or maybe this is getting slightly easier to do. Who knows. I wanted to put cording around him-but was afraid I would give Santa a bad name. He definitely gets me into the Christmas groove. I hope he will get yours to going too. Happy Stitching!

Your Santa looks so cute, and you did a wonderful job on the finishing. I haven't done a flatfold yet, but I have LK's pocketbook kit Beware of Cat that I completed and want to finish that way.

I've had the same experience recently doing flat folds...I think they get easier as you know what and what does not work!
Oh BTW, I'd switch to beta (like you asked me on my blog) seems that the kinks are worked out...it is MUCH easier to blog now! :o)
