|This is my Amanda Lawford Cowboy Santa|
The plaid coat is Shaded Very Velvet & a solid Very Velvet.
One side of the coat took 10 hours on Friday to complete.
|The holly berries are wooden beads wrapped with Kreinik ribbon.|
Open stitch on the beard so the shading shows through.
|Same open stitch is used on Santa's green robe & the background night sky. I've forgotten the the name of the stitch but it can be found in several of Julia Snyder's books.|
|Silk ribbon on the hat. Gold circles are Jessica's. Appears that the coat is an open stitch so the shading shows through.|
|Belt detail is wonderful. Just can't remember what it was.|
