I recently finished this stuffable/toy/decoration for Christmas. I am quite happy with how Father Christmas turned out. This was one of those printed panel things where all the pattern pieces are printed on the fabric.
I really liked the ripped fabric for Santa's beard. Nice and rustic! And yes, that is a pet kitty sitting on his shoulder. The kitty is made separately, then sewn on. I thought about attaching it with a piece of velcro or a snap, but I was afraid it might get lost that way.
