Jolly Old St. Nick!


Who’s the jolliest elf of them all? This guy of course. Jolly Old St. Nick is a big guy! He measures 32″ long from the top of his hat to the tip of his toes. (This will be my only big Santa of the season.) He’s been made of muslin & is stuffed with fiberfill. He’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving him such a lovely, aged patina. Santa’s torso has been rag-stuffed & weighted so that he sits nicely. He’s been sealed so that he may be lightly dusted after display. His arms are button jointed.

Santa’s face has been painted with a variety of media. His nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving him such dimension & great a little pout. He has needle-sculpted hands & fantastic brown boots with detailed red laces. St. Nick’s gloves & boots have been heavily distressed, giving them great vintage appeal!

Jolly Old St. Nick wears corduroy britches, held up by polka dot suspenders. They’ve been hemmed by hand. His shirt is made of taupe osnaburg & features tons of hand-stitching. Santa’s coat is made of deep red velveteen & is edged with warm & natural batting. It’s been applied by hand. That long hat is made from the same fabric as Santa’s suspenders & is edged with that super snuggly, warm & natural batting.


The sweet horse this guy carries is constructed from 5 separate pieces. It is made of muslin, has been hand-painted & sanded & is sealed with a matte uv varnish. His mane & tale are needle-felted in place. He limbs are attached with vintage, mother of pearl buttons.


Santa’s wavy white hair is 100% mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting.
