Father Pine – A Primitive Santa in Shades of Blue & Green

This little fellow doles out Christmas trees as well as gifts. This is Father Pine. He’s a 15.5″ original, one of a kind muslin & fiberfill creation. He’s been hand-painted top to bottom and has been sanded & aged, giving him such a lovely, vintage patina. Father Pine has been sealed so that he may be lightly dusted after display. He has an embroidery loop thread attached, making him suitable for hanging–or he may sit with assistance. His ‘knees’ are sewn through.

Santa’s face has been been carefully painted with a variety of media. His nose & bottom lip has been needle-sculpted by hand, giving him a cute pout underneath that beard & mustache. His hands are needle-sculpted as well. Father Pine wears painted brown boots with white buttons.

Santa’s shirt has been made of cream muslin. His pants are chocolate corduroy with embroidery thread ties at the hemline. Santa’s suspenders & hat is made of 100% cotton fabric. I love the ric-rac print used for Santa’s hat! It is finished off with a silver jingle bell & large folky embroidery thread stitches.
