My bad

Geez.  This design is adorable so why am I messing with it?  I'm tired of using the overdyed reds which have been the majority of recent stitches.  Why not a green suit?  Maybe striped pants?  Green pants and hat?  In order to try this, I needed more leg room.  So I raised the pockets and jacket, but also enlarged his boots and took a few pounds off.  To have a different colored hat, I had to break it off from the jacket, but then added more forehead.  And a taller hat.  See what I mean?  My manipulation of the box labels has turned into a bad habit.  Not sure if I will stick with the original, all one color, or try to make him quirky.  How silly am I to mess with a design from Teresa Kogut???  So ashamed.  No chocolate for me!

I say go for it. Why follow everyone else when you can be different! Who knows, you might end up stitching your favorite santa!

I like them both and at first glance did not recognize the changes. Your mind works creatively so I can see you trying many versions. A pattern, after all, is just a template to get you started just like a road map. There is more than one way to get to your destination. Enjoy the process.

You can have lots of chocolate. I personally like yours better. But why not stitch both? The original and the other one with different colours.

Santa should be happy to give you chocolate - you gave him shoulders! While I like the look of the original's head/hat since it's unusual, your revised version looks great! Green pants? Striped green pants? It's fun to watch you experiment.

(and did yousay you do all the manipulations in MS Paint??)

I like your guy the best. Of course, the fact that he is a bit thinner got me. If only I could stitch a small part of me away!!!!!

The right Santa I like the most.
Go for this chart and make him a jolly Santa with green and yellow pants and jack.
Have fun!

I like both Santa's. I love the idea of striped pants green and red maybe? Have that chocolate and have fun stitching no matter what you decide.

I like both of those Santa's. I just can't mess with my patterns that much. Incidentally, do you load the pattern into the computer so that you can make the changes?

I like both and I'm sure whichever you stitch and whatever changes you make will be great. I'm looking forward to seeing how you stitch the design.
