Starting at one side, roll up into a cone shape so that the Fiberfil gives the hat enough body that it won't flop over. Hot glue in place.

Cut a small scrap of white fun fur and attach to the top of the hat. Hot glue the hat to the top of the creamer lid, stretching extra fabric to cover lid. If you do not have enough, simply glue the hat in place and cut a few scraps to cover and fill the gaps on the lid. Using a long scrap of fun fur, glue the brim of the hat in place.

Coat -- Cut a large rectangular scrap of the red fabric, approximately 8" high by 15" long. Glue the fabric around the body, with the crease in the back, out of sight. Glue in place. Cut two more strips of white fun fur, approximately 12-14" each.

Starting at the top of the red material, in the front of the Santa, glue strips in place as trim for the jacket. Glue all the way around the body. Trim any excess fun fur and red material and glue stragglers in place.

Face -- Use Fiberfil, glue on Santa's beard. Begin just under hat brim where ear would be, work your way completely around the face and back up to the other "ear." Draw on eyes with a black marker. Draw a small oval for the nose with a black ballpoint pen.

Dab sponge into pink paint and blot off extra onto a paper towel or newspaper. Continue blotting until almost all paint is gone. Gently dab remaining pink onto Santa's cheeks. Add a touch of pink to his nose.

Gather the long ends up so that the Fiberfil is now the center of the bag. Tie with gold cord. Glue on plastic toys and/or presents to top of bag. Tuck and fold rough edges of material to make bag look attractive. Glue the bag to the front of Santa's body.
