Santa Claus Shadow Applique Tutorial

Okay, it's the day after Thanksgiving...are you thinking about Christmas? Yeah, I know you don't WANT to think about it....but it will be here soon!
So, to get you in the mood for the about a quick shadow applique (or regular applique if you prefer)...Santa face block or pillow!
This design is from my basic shadow applique class, first taught on the HGTV Message Boards (Crafts: Quilting and Needlework). Here are links to the instructions sheet, the pattern, and the layout guide. Hope you try it...and come back to comment a link so I can check out your work too.

The instructions are for the shadow applique technique, but can easily be adapted to needle-turn or freezer paper applique methods. All files are Adobe Pdf, so if you have problems opening them...just go to and download their free software for reading any Adobe pdf formated files. Have fun!
