Clan Claus Society Santa Special Bonnet’s, Elf Bonnets and Formal Bonnet’s
By Santa Jolly
Hello to all UK Santas,
Although I've performed for children for over 35 years this will be my first season as a Santa Claus. I stumbled across Eileen Strom who has been incredibly helpful in getting me started.
I have made a couple of Santa Sacks based quite heavily on her duffle-bag design. I've had a great response to the bags I've made and I have quite a bit of spare fabric so I'd be happy to make some sacks for my fellow Santas if anyone in the UK is interested. I'm not intending to make this a new business venture but I enjoyed making them and it occurred to me that this could be something which might be of interest.
These two bags are about 110cm tall and have a diameter of about 40cm - I got two double size duvets into each one so they're very roomy! The seams are all double stitched and the strap is reinforced with a nylon webbing strap hidden inside.

Santas... This is a great book! Emiy Weisner Thompson gave me the opportunity to preview it a few weeks back. It helps answer that question we get asked at every visit! I plan on taking it with me during my home and school visits. Finding were Checkermint the Elf is hiding on each page will entertain all ages!
A little side note on the author Emily Weisner Thompson. She lives in Santa Claus Indiana and is the Director of The Santa Claus Museum and Village located there. I've had the privilege of meeting her several times. A wonderful person that shares our love of Christmas!
