Santa and His Helpers

Santa and His Helpers: 18 X 20. We can brighten our holiday with this little reminder of Santa and the gang putting up the Christmas tree, after a long day working at the North Pole. The background is put together in the Bohemian Tapestry style, using many fabrics left over from other projects. For Santa and his friends, I looked at a lot of Christmas clip art and picked out a few of the most interesting images. I made patterns from my drawings and fused the fabric choices onto a stabilizer. I have used several layers of free motion stitching on this and finished with a last go round of metallic thread. Sheer sparkle material is used to represent icy patches on the rocks. Click on image to take a closer look at the sheer fabric sparkles. This wall hanging can be purchased through the Polish Pottery Shoppe. This can be seen on OFF THE WALL FRIDAYS
