What is your Christmas Inspiration?
Santa Claus is my inspiration!
Sitting on the Edge Santa Claus
This is a sitting on the edge Santa Claus. It is very simple to sew. The size of my pattern is variable, so you can sew it smaller or bigger.
You can make him with felt or paper and instead of sewing , you can glue the pieces with your kids.
On one side of the coat you can sew a little pocket, for a money present . You can give him legs. Or what you want.
It’s a nice Christmas decoration.
Red Cotton 30 x 40 cm
White Cotton (little piece)
Rough white Cotton for the beard
2 Buttons for the Eyes or something other
Maybe a little pompon or bell for the hat
You need two Triangles, both have the same size.
Please work two Triangles by the instructions you see on the pictures. Transfer it on a cardboard.
One of them is for the 3 triangles for the solid sides of the Santa.
Before you cut it out, draw a seam allowance of 0,5cm to the triangle.
The second triangle:
Cut out the different pieces. The coat and the beard have the same sizes. This pieces need +seam allowance!
– Red Fabric: The big triangle 3 pieces for the sides and the bottom
Think of the seam allowance!!!
– Red Fabric: The pattern for the hat, and 2 x for the coat
– Rough fabric: the beard
– White fabric: the eyepiece
Sew the coat and the beard together
Sew the hat and the eyepiece together
Sew the top and the lower part together
Now the front side is ready!
Sew the red triangles on the sides of the front and close it on the back to a pyramid.
The last solid triangle is for the bottom. You can fix it with pins and sew.
Let a part of 3 cm open!
Pull it on the right side and fill it with your filling material
Close the open seam- sew by hand
Now you can glue eyes or stitch it, or sew little buttons.
On the hat you can fix a pompom or bell.
