Santa in over-alls

Hello.  I've been very busy over the winter and spring.  I'd like to start sharing some of what I've been making.

   This Santa was commissioned by a woman who wanted a mountain Santa in his work clothes.  I loved her ideas and created this Santa for her.  
   Making a pattern for the over-alls was a real challenge but the toughest part of all was the top stitching.  He is only 6 inches high and it all had to be done by hand.  It took a week to finish.  
   The boots are leather glued to his feet with Tacky glue.  I painted them with a wash of acrylic paint to make them look worn.
