Patterns: Steampunk Santa

Steampunk Santa WIP Side Beard View

Steampunk Santa WIP - stitched by sereniticat

It's never too early to get ready for Christmas it seems (I have to admit my to stitch list for Christmas is beginning to nag at me). Sereniticat has made an amazingly admirable start with the Steampunk Santa pattern from Urban Threads. I just adore the detailing on this, the little gold beads for buttons, the different textural stitches and of course the fluffy beard! I can't wait to see the finished piece!

Hi, I'm Jo - I feature new embroidery patterns Sundays on Feeling Stitchy. I also post on our Twitter and Pinterest.

Is there a new pattern you'd like us feature? Email me!


  1. Wow! I'm not a Christmas person at all - but that stitching is wonderful! Loving the steampunk twist.

  2. This is too cool~my sister would love it!

  3. I've never been a big fan of Santa crafts, but I think I'd make an exception for Steampunk Santa. So neat!

  4. I saw this in the Flickr pool, it is an amazing piece so far, and she's not even done!! So glad to see it featured here. The beard is FANTASTIC!

  5. Hi ! I noticed this a few days ago but was too embarrassed to comment. Thank you for noticing Santa and putting him up here. It was very exciting and such a surprise.

    It's very much the inspiration I need to keep up with him. Santa and I have had a falling out this week, and I am pretty sure I wont be on his Christmas List this year!

    Thank you everyone for your nice comments !
