Stars and Snowflake Table Runner with Island Batik from Sew Incredibly Crazy

It seems that September slipped
away from me and I had to post
this challenge a day into October.

Penguin and Reindeer Snow Globe from Sew Incredibly Crazy

So I snuck in one more
project before Christmas time
(Well, actually two)
and I absolutely love them.



Two sweet characters to grace my couch
for Christmas and maybe the
whole winter.



They are so much fun to play with.
I keep catching the kids
tipping them over and 
watching the snow falling
around the penguin or 
the reindeer.

They are so much fun, 
but really hard to take 
a great picture of because of the light always 
reflecting off the vinyl or the glitter.

If you are looking for a fun
and different pattern, 
you can find them as ...
