 OH  SANTA...

PLEASE

STOP

HERE!

Doesn't everyone on your Gift list this year need a Super Cute sign...

just like this one to hang in their home this Christmas Holiday?  

I can think of about 4 on my list already! 

Let me tell you how I did it...

so you can make one or two or TEN for those ...

Special Someone's!

I used the "Swirly Beard Santa" Applique design...

and merged it with some Super Cute text in a Font called "Penguin Grins"!

Be sure to check my Tools of the Trade at the bottom of this Blog Post to find all the details of what I used to make this cute sign...

and where I got them too!

I followed the same stitching/stabilizing process I have used when I make my Christmas Ornaments...

by combining my fabric with a piece of Warm and White 100% Cotton Batting before I loaded it into my frame and onto the machine.

AND...

YES...YES...YES...

I used some of that FABULOUS Glitter Mirror Vinyl for the Santa Hat Brim and Ball too!

Gracious BE!

Once I had the Design stitched out...

I mounted the design onto a piece of Sticky Board...

and then mounted it onto a second piece fo Sticky Board that I had covered with a Pretty Christmas Plaid I got from Hobby Lobby!

And just like some of my previous ornaments...

I used a simple Sparkly White Cording around the edge of the to give it a little POP!

Once I made the "double mount"...I attached the whole thing to this Hanging Chalkboard sign I found at Hobby Lobby!

I also added a Simple Metallic Sparkly Bow and a Santa Jingle Bell...

and changed out the hanger for this fabulou RED Cording to tie it all together just RIGHT!

Isn't it just PERFECT?
