In the previous article I provided instructions for knitting a Santa doll.
Knit Santa Doll
Santa needs a Santa suit, so I thought that I would make him one from handmade felt.
I started by felting a fairly thin piece of red felt (approx 15″x15″ Square)
After felting I cut a piece of this felt that was wide enough to fit around Santa’s tummy, and long enough to fit his legs. Then I cut partly up the center of the piece of felt – to fit around his legs.
I hand stitched around the cut piece with a length of wool yarn, to strengthen the edges.
A quick and easy way to make your own needle felted Christmas decorations is to use a cookie cutter as a form. This is a good project if you are a beginner at needle felting. In order to do needle felting you will need a small piece of foam rubber or a pillow on which to work.

While Hilary Clinton asked weavers, knitters and artisans from the 50 states to contribute handmade Christmas ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, we hosted our own Christmas ornamentexchange for visitors to our website. Each participant wove 6 ornaments that will be distributed to other participants. Here are some of them.
