I made scarves this year as gifts to my friends and family (kept a fox for myself :D). I got the ideas and fox pattern from prudentbaby.com.
I hand-sewed my ears so they stick up a little bit. I also edited the pattern to make the wolf nose wider and guidelines for the bear.
I used soft flannel fabric and ultra cuddle fabric for underneath (so soft!). The scarves are a yard and a half long and I used 1/4″ seam allowance on everything except for the long body I used 1/2″.
I couldn’t find a lot of cute penguin ornaments so I made my own! I found a tutorial from craftberrybuch.com
I didn’t add the feet on mine, I think they look cuter without them.
Instead of the traditional star or angel at the top of the tree, I wanted to do something different. I decided to make our tree an awesome top hat – like a sir!
I made the top hat out of burlap lined with cardboard to make it real stiff. I used a mixture of sewing and hot glue.
