SERIOUSLY? Twenty-eight of these?

What was I thinking?



I ran out of steam halfway through these, made myself finish them last night.
You can get the pattern here.

If you are counting, (I know someone will check up on my math), there are only 27 here, gave one away already.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Needled Mom said...

Rhey are darling, Barb....a gaggle of Santas!!

hetty said...

You really are amazing! I downloaded the pattern a few days ago, but haven't made any yet. I think 5 or 6 will be enough for me. Can't imagine making any more than that.

Nanci said...

Oh Barb: once again I leave blog land and you become addicted to cute little Christmas things. Also the new machine is awesome. Must look for something too...Ebay, never thought of that.

Nanci said...

I leave you for a few weeks and look what you do...shop, shop, sew and sew more. I love the little santas...but I am so far behind stuff that this will not be done this year. Next year I must look for an embroidery machine too. What a deal you got.

Ariane said...

Terry said...

Those came out so cute! I don't think I'd ever make that many at once! LOL

LuAnn said...

They are adorable and worth every minute that you spent on them Barb.

Cyndi said...

Ha ha ha...oh Barb, you are wonderful, my friend! They are all so cute. I downloaded the pattern earlier, but as usual, haven't made any yet...maybe next year!

XOXO,

We knew you could do it!! They are darling!

wackywoman said...

LOL I never thought about counting them. They are really cute. I bet you are SO done with them.

Mrs.Pickles said...

very cute! I have saved the pattern and that might be as far as they get this year... :0

Elizabeth said...

Barb! Those are SEW cute! I'm going to save that pattern for future Christmases (neighbor gifts) because WOW!

I have made one of those Christmas Balls you showed the other day. Am I just slow, or do they really take kind of a long time (like 3 hours) to make? I've got to put the band around the middle and then I'll show it. I wanted to make those for neighbor gifts this year, but I may run out of time.

Anyway, my point is, THANK YOU! for the cute ornament ideas. I think that homemade ornaments make the best neighbor gifts and I haven't had any good ideas on them in several years.

What Comes Next? said...

Susan said...

They are so cute...what a great gift idea!

ButtonMad said...

You only ran out of steam halfway?! I would've been done after number 1! Incredible amount of effort and hard work!

Mary Beth said...

LOL I just finished 13 and that is enough. One for each toddle favor in my granddaughters school class. LOL They are labor intensive and I have taken way to long to finish them. No more Santa's this year but they are so cute!!marybeth.ticknor@yahoo.com

Lesley said...

Yes, 28 was a lot, but they're done now and we're all jealous that yours are all finished and the rest of us (me) has to start! Great idea!

West Michigan Quilter said...

You sure have been busy. I got one done. Yours are so cute!

Joanna said...

What a cute bunch of santas. A lot of work, but sure to be appreciated.

Mrs. Sew and Sew - Karen said...

Shari said...

That is a lot of Santas! Impressive.

Love the table toppers too.

Hope your Christmas is filled with fun and laughter and lots of family!

Lynn said...

I'm making 14 ornaments this year and struggling. I can't imagine doing 28!

I've got a couple of those Santas on my tree. My mom made them a few years ago.

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Yea for a finish! I started making 20 something Santas the other day. I got as far as sewing all the fabric to the front and trimming it. I was using scrap fabric for the red hats and didn't think about needing to have red for the back. Did you use all red for the back or is it half red and half white? I'm thinking about adding batting to mine.

Sheila said...

That is a lot of Santas ,they sure are cute !

Madame Samm said...
