Gingercake Holiday Gift Blog Tour


I’m so excited to be part of Gingercake’s Holiday Gift Blog Tour!  Virginia, who writes the Gingercake blog, has a wide variety of creative sewing patterns, from penguins to purses from lunchboxes to llamas!  It was hard to choose just one – but the penguins stole my heart!!

The penguin pattern was easy to follow with excellent step by step instructions – I never had to read between the lines!  I have twin nieces who just turned 1 year old.  I can’t wait to give them each a penguin for Christmas!

I used soft flannel for the penguin body and I made the tummies, beak, and feet out of minky.  The twins LOVE minky!! img_6824

Since the minky can twist and shift like no other fabric on the planet, I used a little Spray n Bond basting spray to keep the pieces in place while sewing.img_6827

I zig zagged around each piece two times.  I love how the pattern has little darts in the head and body to give the penguins more shape!  They each have their own personality – don’t you think!  Now, what to name them!!


Mufasa was a little confused and did not know what a penguin was 🙂 img_6868 Check out the other AMAZING designers who are participating in the Gingercake Holiday Gift Blog Tour!!  Start making your lists and checking them twice!!  Christmas is coming fast!!
