After visiting the Christmas Markets I had an urge to do some Christmassy sewing.
I've always admired the 'Tomte' over at Kajsa's blog, Syko and it just so happens I have her book.
The fabric selection was easy and the pattern pieces where traced before the morning school run.
The pattern was easy to follow, although I did make some slight alterations.
As the body/dress fabric was a light colour, I added some lovely red buttons and I also thought he needed some boots to match his hat!!
The assembly went OK, but beware - if you over stuff your arms and legs, they are difficult to squeeze into the body!!
So the finished Tomte, . . . .
I think he's waiting for the Christmas decorations, ooh when should we put them up?
