I love anything to do with Santa. I have ornaments Santa lights, garlands, stuffed pillows, jewelry, wreaths and socks. If it's Santa I most likely have it. This is going to be on my tree this Chrustmas. It's too cute and say to not make it.thank you for offering another Santa to my collection.

Very cute. Picture (as with many on this site) could be bigger/better. It's cute to see him in the tree but we could see the patter better if he were against a plain background.

Breezy, I find that I have to just select the text and photo I want and copy and paste it to my notepad and then print from there. Sometimes copying the picture works and sometimes it doesn't, but I always at least get the text of the pattern.

I tried to print this" Crochet Santa Ornament" i recieved page one and not the other instructions. What have done wrong.this my first craft i wanted from you Please help me Thank you Breezy
