A little Santa for the McDonalds house up in London,
off to make a few adjustments.

Awesome Graham, I love the ruffle on the bottom of the coat, nice touch :-)

Glad you like the ruffle Tonya, so to be honest I did a search on balloonchat for some inspiration
before I started and Daniel had a Santa with the ruffle so that was my starting point.

I was surprised at how much Christmas designs came up for us to look through.

Thanks,
Tonya

This is the one I saw but just looking through and Bonnie posted a very similar one as well
so perhaps Daniel saw that one and made his? They were posted way back in 2008.

I was making another Santa this week so did a search here on balloon chat.
I was surprised with how I made the face on the one above, around the eyes was all white?
WHY? No idea but I must have been pleased with it at the time, oops.

So this was my prototype that I made in the week.

The hat was just placed on so I could see the effect.
The other two were too complicated and one looked a little snail like to me.

Thanks Tonya, it's just a variation on the one I made before.
The riffle under the belt is wider at the sides than in the centre although
it was all measured at the same size, I wonder why that was?

A few more pictures I took of the finished Santa.

I changed the star design as the one earlier was pretty poor and basic.

Then I put it up the wrong way, I did sort it out before we sent the design out though.
