Santa’s Union Suit Ornament

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Actually, in my house, preparing for Christmas is an all-year, on-going process. It has to be. When you sell at craft sales you can’t wait until December to start making merchandise. I have a show this weekend that I originally didn’t think I would be able to do. It runs Friday through Sunday. Friday wasn’t going to work for me, but they are allowing us to come in Saturday morning to set up for the remaining two days. The event is the Habitat For Humanity 4th Annual Festival of Trees in Arkansas City, Kansas. Come check it out.

These Santa union suits are a quickie craft I am whipping up (last-minute) for the show.

I work in assembly line style. I seem to be able to accomplish more in a short amount of time that way.

The attached back flap hides a slit for filling the suit with special treats.

The entire outer edge of the suit is stitched closed. The ribbon hanger is attached at the same time.

After adding buttons to the front…

…and the back…

It is ready to hang on the tree.

  1. There is a little Christmas saying that goes with the Santa Union Suit. If anyone has it please send it to me. Thank You so Much.

    • Hi Paula, I only know of this one. “I looked for a stocking, but couldn’t find a spare…so I ended up stuffing Santa’s red underwear.” hth
