Edit: I realized too late that these sets were out of sequence! I'll fix it for tomorrow & get back on track, in order, by Monday!
And the Santa paper dolls continue! Next up are country cowboy Santa and Mrs Claus. I decided this year (since this project isn't ambitious enough) to create all of my patterns and brushes in Illustrator. Unless I can't figure it out, like the rope. I have a great rope brush and I'm not big on reinventing the wheel.
The Christmas tree pattern, however, is all mine. And that hat! I drew these all out on paper first and that really helped to get the hat right. Sometimes I see something or try something and suddenly it clicks. It finally makes sense. And that's what happened with this hat. I might draw cowboy hats with every set now!!
If you're looking for the dolls, you can grab them here.
