Ho - Ho- Ho

I have been working on a Christmas Placemat that I will be teaching my club to make next month.  This is from a McCall's Quilting magazine, December 2007.   I modified the pattern dimensions a little to accomodate paper piecing the Santa.
This is the placemat before it is quilted and bound - I guess it is a flimsy placemat.




The pattern called for a fabric bow to be tied to the hat. While it was cute, I did not particular want that on my placemats, so I have been auditioning different things to put on the Santa cap.

Below are the three finalists - which do you like best?


Thanks for your input,
Teresa

If they are to be used as I use my placemats ... at each person's place to be eaten off of... Something flat would probably be best...a star, a snowflake, a button. All look great.

The Santa is really cute. I really like the white snowflake in the middle. That would also be cute as a wall hanging for Christmas.
