He fits through every chimney and in every sock… but he prefers to decoratively sit around somewhere watching the hustle and bustle of the winter holidays.

Santa is part of my Shelf Sitters Collection.

The Shelf Sitters never stay in one place for long here though. My kids are just too fascinated by them and love to play with them. :)

Easy and fast to crochet, and a real eye-catcher on every shelf. The perfect present during the christmas holidays, or just for fun. :)
