Hot off the sewing machine. This is an FSL Santa from Embroidery by TM. It’s in the 5x7 hoop. The next one I do will have flesh colour for the face, it said grey in the instructions but once I’d started and realised the colour was his face I just kept going. I don’t like the colour of his face, but he’s still gorgeous. Love Chris


UPDATE: I wasn't happy with his grey face, so made a new one with flesh - Sulky 1801 "Flesh" Much better!

Hi Hilda, yes, you are right. The "flesh" colour works much better. Love Chris

Such a lovely Santa! I would love to order the pattern but EmbroiderybyTM doesn't want to sell to the Netherlands :-(

Great looking Santa, Chris! It looks more like a stitched filled design than FSL!

Beautiful Santa - I love Santas and my tree and home is full of them at Christmas. Great job....may he has soot on his face? LOL

Ha ha Dlonna, that's what a couple of others have said on here! I'm like you, I'm a collector of Santas and have lots around my home and on the tree. Love Chris

Your FSL is wonderful - I am not that great at it!! Take a flesh colored felt tip and color it in a little if you feel like you need to. He is adorable!! Hugs, Laura

Thanks for that tip Laura. I've got a full set of Sharpies, so I'll have a look through them. It doesn't really matter though as he's going on my Christmas tree! Love Chris

He IS a pretty Santa. The stitching looks great. I don't understand how those zig-zag edges will not come apart though, once the wash-a-way is off. That is why I don't do FSL. I do understand your concern about his face....he may be like me, skin changes colors in the cold.

Thanks Toogie, yes, the edging is superbly digitised and I've never had any trouble with this Digitiser's designs. Love Chris

Now, that's a good idea, he's been through some soot! Love Chris
