Santa will soon be on his way!
Designed and hooked by Kris Miller
I designed this rug for a workshop a few years ago and included several fun techniques: sculpting (holly berries and pom pom on Santa's hat), hooking realistic primitive eyes, hooking with roving, and binding a crochet edge with wool strips. My inspiration for the design came from old Christmas postcards and of course, my love of sheep.
One year when I was a kid, Santa left a sooty boot print on the hearth in front of our fireplace. That was all the proof I needed that Santa had really and truly visited our house sometime during the night. I don't even remember what he left for us...I just remember that boot print!
