Christmas Chenille Kids and Chenille Father Christmas

You can craft a whole Christmas village with these chenille figures. Even Santa is easy to create. Because of the chenille, they can be formed to sit or stand. They are so quick and easy to make and even children can help craft them. Unlike the figures on the instruction page, these figures have wooden heads, hands and feet. For children, felt is easier to work with, easier to form and does not fray.
