My Santas and Candy canes

I have been working on some of my #430 Mr. Jingles pattern this week. I made him a little different from last year. I put a bag in his arms, instead of the candy cane. It is amazing how different a look you can get, by using different wool for his beard. I had some dark red fleece, that I used for his coat. I have this pattern on the sidebar for a special price of $4.00 if you are interested.

My 3 Santa's waiting on Christmas to get here. I hope to make a bunch of Santa's this year with the dark reds and long white beards.

I made up some of more of my candy canes, I had a hard time finding the bigger plastic canes last year. Luckily I had bought a bunch of them, the year before. I had originally found the idea on She has the tutorial on there for wrapping the candy canes if you are interested. These sell really well for me every year.

Last year, I found a bunch of the skinny candy canes and wrapped them the same way. I added the candy cane poem, to the candy canes as a tag.

Here is the poem to go with the candy cane, it is in the download box all the way at the bottom of the page.
