Santa Claus and other characters

I  love to make Santa Claus dolls and related characters. They all have wire armature for support. Their clothing is individually sewn. The mohair is dyed as needed. Fingers are wired. Their faces include glass eyes. Below are  samples of my favorite creations. Enjoy!

Santa Genaro

Ethnic Santa“: one of my favorites because he looks like a family member. There’s an elf hidden in the basket.
