I have just finished a Santa Sack for my workmate's grandson. It has taken me 52 hours to complete, I started it the first week in June and have just finished sewing on the Christmas bells this afternoon.
It has applique, machine embroidery and patchwork, with lots of stipling and quilting.
This is the 5th santa sack I have made, although they take a lot of time (I also work 3 days a week), I enjoy making them as each one is different.
I will attach a couple of pics for you to look at.
Now I am hoping to have time to play with PMB5 and make myself some summer clothes....

That is a stunning piece of work. I hope the recipient will learn to admire it once he's old enough to look at what's on the outside of the sack, as well as what's on the inside!

Maryann , the sack is very pretty. Is there a tradition involved with the sack?

Wow -

Just this morning I was thinking of Christmas aprons.  I'm taking a two day machine embroidery workshop later in November.  Hope to improve my skills.

Spectacular! I so admire quilters with their patience (52 hours on a project WOW!) and their artistic talents. The result speaks for itself what a fantastic sack to treasure.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
I gave it to my workmate this morning and she is delighted with it. Hopefully the sack will be passed down in the family, if it lasts that long, as it is only brought out at Christmas time it should last many years.
There is no significance to the santa sack that I know of. I made the first one for my grand daughter at a class held at my local machine dealer, and just loved it so much, when my second grand daughter came along I made her one also, my friends see them and just want one for their little ones as well. I only make one for someone I know will appreciate it.
52 hours sounds a long time, but it is spread out over 5 months, I just do a little at a time...although it doesn't give me much time for other sewing.
I have still found time to teach my 6 year old grand daughter how to use a sewing machine, she is making a bag at the moment....every little girl needs a handbag so she says!

The more I look at this beautiful piece, the more inspired I am!  Think of the waste that would be eliminated by putting gifts in a Santa sack each year, instead of in boxes, paper and disposable gift bags!  And this is a piece of art as well!  Well done!
