Counted Cross Stitch, Cross Stitch Patterns, Merry Old Santa Claus, Santa Claus, Primitive Decor, Christmas Decor, Thomas Nast, Pattern Only
This is for the PATTERN ONLY. Santa Claus with his white beard and plump red cheeks wearing his now-familiar red suit with wide belt and a red cap trimmed with holly smoking a meerschaum pipe. He wears a pack on his back and in his arms carries a doll, picture books, a watch, a toy sword, wooden horse, and other toys. Thomas Nast was the creator of our modern popular idea of Santa. (1881) Included with your counted cross stitch chart is a FREE color floss label sheet (image 5 is just a sample of what the label sheet includes). Original sample was stitched over 16 cross stitch fabric and stitched over 1 but will look fantastic stitched on 32 count linen over 2. Pattern stitch count is 186 w x 260 l and measures on 16 count fabric 11.6" w x 16.3" l. DMC Floss is used throughout the pattern. The picture is printed on the covers, making it easy to see what the finished product will look like. The cover material is bright white, heavy glossy paper for durability and vibrant color. The charts are printed on heavy weight, easy-to-handle 8.5" x 11" pages, coil bound so that the pages turn smoothly and the booklet lies flat.
