Christmas Chums!

So it's getting into Christmas craft territory especially since i was asked to do a Christmas Craft fair at the weekend...really put me in the mood!!

So when i saw this little was excitment at first sight!!! Justify Full He is sooo sweet and was super-easy to do. It's a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn, called Amigurumi Reindeer. It had been a while since i'd been doing any crocheting and i loved it so much i decided to make him a little friend...

Hello Santa!! I didn't fancy any of the Santa patterns that i found online so I just made this one up. I'll maybe get round to writing down the pattern and if so, i'll post it here. I could have done with a more peachy face-colour, but you're working with what you've got...right??
My favourite bit is the little sack...i made it all slouchy expanding in the stitches on one side and fitted it neatly on the shoulder, when i realised that his little chubby arm wasn't going to reach it!! lol...o well!!
I probably need to explain the pic below as they both appear to be floating in the cloudy sky. Believe it or not it is an action shot of the moment that Santa jumped off Rudolph's back and is about to parachute to earth to check on the naughty and the nice before finalising and signing off "The List".
So which section do you come under???!!!
