Santa Silhouette

DSC02063SantaSilhouette.jpg Santa Silhouette

This is from WOCS Magazine.
I stitched it on navy 14 count aida using B5200 DMC and beads for the moon.
I googled "rooftop silhouette" then traced this one onto black card and carefully cut it out.
Added red metallic reins and a red bead for Rudolph's nose!

Baby was my friend's godson born very premature and tiny (hence the inclusion of the length as well as birth weight).  Baby is thriving and doing well now.
