It’s a new year, a new month, and our Christmas countdown begins again. That most wonderful day is precisely 11 months away, and we have some good things in store for you in the upcoming year.
Speaking of wonderful days, did you know that both Becky and I celebrated our birthdays earlier this month? Yep, we sure did! Many of our friends in Santa’s Secret Village joined in the festivities, including Raymond. Here’s our dear little friend standing in the shower of confetti, waiting to get a taste of the luscious frosting.
Polar bear caught your eye, eh? My favorite part about this bear (besides the fact that it looks cute and snuggly) is the stencil-like pattern. This banner can be hung in a child’s room, living room, or on a door. Alternatively, you can use this pattern to put the polar bear on a pillow, tote bag, or whatever else you like!
Christmas is almost here—tomorrow is the big day! If you are tying up some loose ends and need to scratch a few more gifts off your list, now’s the time to give an e-gift card. An e-gift card is sent immediately to the recipient’s email inbox.
When I first had the idea for this tree, I mocked it up by pinning the felt loops to foam. Several loops and pins later, I decided to turn it into a pillow. You could put it on anything that you like, such as a picture frame or wall décor.
One important thing I learned while making this is that if you are using stretchy fabric, then you will need to make you pillow cover slightly smaller than the size of the pillow. My pillow is a 14″ square, and my stretchy pillow cover is a 13″ square.
