Stuff the tube with cotton balls and push the cotton balls around until you are satisfied with Santa's shape. Sew seam on each side for arms and one between legs to give the appearance of legs and arms with needle and thread. Attach tiny white pom pom on his hat. Sew on eyes, a red nose, a beard (loops of white yarn around the face), buttons, and a belt buckle. See Abbreviations and the Glossary for help.
