Time to start Christmas Crafting!

There, I said it! I am not trying to scare anyone by mentioning the word Christmas in August. But I have learned that if you want to have a relaxed and festive Christmas season you have to start making your Christmas crafts early! Yesterday I had lunch with a friend who will be very involved in a Christmas Bazaar. I helped her with it last year and much to my surprise, I really liked it! After lunch I headed to Jo Ann's to buy some felt. I had seen a few cute penguins online earlier in the day. So that is what I made, a penguin ornament. It took a while to make the pattern the right size and after three tries I came up with this cute little guy.

I thought he needed to look a little more festive so I attached a Christmas list to his arm. However, today I did not like it so much and removed it! Who knows it could be back on by the end of the day. Now, I must go buy more felt! I want to make at least 20 of them! Yikes, 20?

Thanks for visiting!

Really cute. My mom's church had bazaars a long time ago. She sewed beautifully, but wasn't much of a crafter, so she would recruit me to help. It was fun!
