A first!

This is a first for me in quite a few ways.  He is the first primitive Santa I ever made.
I am so pleased with the outcome.

This is first NOSE I ever needle sculpted, the first eyes I ever painted like this and.............
my first attempt at needle sculpting his hair, eye brows, moustache and beard.

I really enjoyed making him and would like to thank Hidden in the Attic for creating this wonderful pattern.

He even comes with a battery operated candle!
He is available in my Etsy shop
