December Trivet Tux

DECEMBER!!!!!

Am I the only one who has blinked and found that it's December already?
Whew, did this year fly by.

I know it's a crazy time of year for everyone, so our trivet tux is going to be a quick and easy one this time! 

Thanks, to Sindy over at Fat Cat Patterns!  Click HERE to download one for yourself.
I did reduce this pattern by 50%, as her original pattern was for a 12 1/2 block.



I've found lately that leftover batting scraps make for wonderful beards for Santa, or even the fur trimmings on his coat.  I added eyes to by little guy and I blushed his cheeks to give him a bit of personality. So there you go, fast easy and done. Ready to start enjoying the holidays with.



Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!

PS: if your new to my blog you can find the tutorial for the trivet tux's HERE !
