I created these little men as Christmas gifts, hence why I've had to wait until after the big day to share it with you. Look under his hat to discover he's a hollow fellow filled with chocolate truffles (I must confess not homemade on this occasion - must try harder next year). But he could also easily be stuffed to make a soft toy, or even weighted at the bottom then stuffed to make a festive door stop.
The pattern on my patterns page as usual. You've now got plenty of time to get cracking and have some ready for next Christmas!
