The December issue of Pretty Patches included a complimentary booklet called ‘Easy Christmas Gifts’.
I fancied having a go at the cute Swedish Santas. However it took me 3 goes to get them right!
A few ‘bottom’ issues meant my Santas weren’t sitting completely upright. And so they were affectionately named ‘Tipsy Santas’! (I think they got to the sherry a little too early!)
I also had a few ‘glue’ issues first time around, so I exchanged gluing the ribbon on with self-adhesive crochet trim. Oh how I love this stuff!
But despite the issues, I’m pleased with how they turned out, and have gifted 2 of them.
So if you would like to have a go at making some Swedish ‘Tipsy Santas’ my advice is to cut out the circle base a few inches smaller, go carefully with the glue and stay well away from the Sherry!
