Pattern No. 1 - Santa Claus
This ongoing 'Twas the Night pattern series is inspired by Clement C. Moore's 1823 poem, A Visit From St. Nicholas (more commonly known as The Night Before Christmas). This is the first pattern in the series and more will follow.

This detailed, intermediate level sewing pattern shows you how to make a colorful, embroidered, sparkly Santa Claus ornament. Its vintage look is perfect for your Christmas tree or for special handmade gifting. The ornament is sewn entirely by hand. Choose your own colors, or follow my pre-chosen colors of felt and floss (

HOW HARD ARE THESE TO MAKE? I'm often told my sewing patterns are more akin to a craft class! I give very detailed instructions so you aren't left wondering. While this is not a beginner's sewing project, it is probably easier than you think! If you can do precision cutting of small pieces, basic hand stitches (running stitch, whipstitch, and backstitch), work with seed beads and sequins, and are familiar with basic sewing and embroidery terms, then you can make this project and make it well!
HERE'S WHY: this pattern utilizes a Sulky brand water-soluble stabilizer which makes putting the ornament together easy, fast and accurate. The design prints or copies directly on the stabilizer, which is then adhered to the felt, and you embroider/bead right on top of it! NO TEDIOUS PATTERN TRACING OR EMBROIDERY TRANSFER. Fantastic! (If you can't use the Sulky stabilizer, I've also included tips for that.)

The 20-page Santa Claus sewing pattern features:

- 4 x 5.5 inch wool felt Santa Claus figurine ornament with embroidery/beading
- Tiny accessories: stocking, jingle bell ornament, and candy cane
- 3.5 inch hanging loop
- Sheet with 20 years of dates to embroider on the back of the ornament
- Neat, digitally drawn, actual-sized pattern pieces that do not overlap
- Step-by-step, detailed instructions with clear, professionally drawn diagrams and color sample photos
- Resources section with stitching diagrams, tips, and supply links

Materials used to make this ornament include: wool or wool-blend felts, cotton pipe cleaners, chenille stem, unfinished 20 mm wood bead, embroidery floss, seed beads, sequins, mini jingle bells, stuffing, and a Sulky printable stabilizer. A complete list of materials is in the photo of the pattern page above. Zoom in to read through it.

This pattern is in PDF format on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, so you can print it from your regular printer at home on standard paper and printable stabilizer, as many times as you need for personal use.

I absolutely love this pattern. I had instant download and the instructions are very detailed....great. I enjoyed making him and bought the Mrs Claus too. The pieces are quite small and the stitching is easy but I dont think it would be suitable for someone with an eye sight problem. The instructions are clear and easy to understand and its easy to print off too. Once you have done one Santa then it gets easier although I have lost quite a number of moustaches !! Put all your pieces in a plastic bag so they dont get lost. I couldnt be happier with my end result and am in the process of making lots for relatives. Congrats for making a wonderful design!! Thank you very much. I love this very much.

I loved making this little Santa. I made Mrs. Claus first and she was a treat too. The patterns are clever and extremely clear. I can’t wait to make more from the collection!

Brilliant pattern ! I had to improvise and create the embellishments by eye due to not finding Sulky in the UK. This added to the individuality of the piece. The pattern is beautifully written and presented . This triggered me into buying the Twelve Days of Christmas ! Love these patterns and will always buy more as they are released !
