This cute little guy is based on some Christmas tree ornaments I made years ago when Bill and I were first married. I did a lot of sewing in those days, even made all my own clothes from Vogue patterns. I  loved embroidery, which almost every one of these stuffed fabric ornaments required. I still have all of them; they have held up amazingly well. The others are Santas, stockings, and Christmas tree balls, all vintage 1970's.  I guess I am getting nostalgic this year; maybe I will paint some more of them!

  1. I love this. I made lots of fabric ornaments in the 70's also. Most are still being used. It's funny how many things we have in common.
