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.
