Saint Nicholas joined our family a few years back. Â I love his rustic look and charm. Â I made him from a pattern out of Australia Homespun, No.12 (Vol 3.4). Â It is a fairly old magazine. Â I had it a few years before making St Nick. Â He wore a beard of inferior quality for a couple of years, until I stumbled upon some lovely natural woollen fleece. Â It looks and feels so much better than his previous beard did. Â I love him dearly!
I have made a lovely little tradition each Christmas where I read a story of St Nicholas to the children, with him sitting at our side of course.
