Quick last minute gifts to make!

I sat down the other night & made some ornaments!
The penguins are going to be given to Sunday school teachers along with some note card sets - that I still need to assemble! LOL!
SOOO easy & fast to make! I used paper piecing patterns from
I cut out my pieces from felt & glued them together with Fabric Tac (easy to find at Walmart & craft stores).
The eyes are french knots. (And the sprinkles on the tree cookie.) I've never been able to stitch a decent french knot, but did a search on the net & found a video & it was SUCH a help! :)
I did cut a 2nd body piece to cover my stitches from the eyes & to sandwhich the ribbon in for hanging.
These went very fast -I made them while watching tv.
Have fun!!
