Little Santa Sack

Hi, Stitchy Friends.

Once in a while I manage to overcome my laziness and actually properly finish a project or two. You may remember that my Smalls SAL finish for May was Lizzie*Kate’s Very Merry Santa, and that I hadn’t got around to sewing it into a bag. Well:

Very Merry Santa, designed by Lizzie*Kate

Yay! Here he is all finished up. I used the fabric, ribbon, and buttons included in the kit. The back is the same fabric you see on the top cuff.

Unfortunately, this bag didn’t go together as nicely as the previous ones in the series (Hello Spring for example). The template was too small (I would have had to cut some of my stitching to make it fit), and the included finishing fabric was only very barely just enough. In fact, I had to make the top cuff shorter than called for to make it fit. This is the first time I have run into any issues with a Lizzie*Kate kit like this, and hopefully it will be the last. 😉

Santa will be put away until Christmas. But, at least I have all the other designs from this series stitched up and properly finished, so I can display the proper one for each season.

    I think you did a great job overcoming the shortcomings of the kit. It’s nice to have a seasonal display too.
