I don't have people in many scenes. That doesn't mean I don't like miniature dolls, but I don't buy or do very many of them.
Quite a few years ago I bought a doll and it must have stayed on the shelf for a long time; so long in fact, that I don't remember how long. Anyway, I finished my Santa doll and then figured he would look better with something beside him. The toy bag was made out of a scrap of fabric used on another projet. Love the toy horse and bear in the bag. He also comes out every Christmas to shape the holiday.
This doll is 1/12 scale. The sleigh was a Christmas ornament that happen to just work with the rest of the project. Base is faux snow that just paints on.
