Pattern inspiration

A few months ago, I started making some crochet items for Christmas, these are aimed to be handed to my friends and family as part of their Christmas gifts while keeping some for our own Christmas tree also as decoration. I hope on adding this Santa Applique for completeness.

Who would you be making these for? While you are still here, check out the other Christmas related crochet patterns on my blog linked below;

You can use these Santa as appliques or hang them on your Christmas tree or string them into a beautiful garland to decorate your home. One of my testers even made hers into a Key Chain! I think this is a cool idea and that there is no limit as to how many ways to use these.

These would make some good use for the ends of yarns you’ve been keeping.

The Pattern for the Santa applique is however free, keep reading to get the free pattern here on my blog.
