A Resolution for the New Year Penguin

This is what I'll be doing on Monday. I really love it!
I think my kiddos are going to love him.

Do you know about using embroidery floss?
I vaguely remember embroidering something long ago... but I have used embroidery floss forever for tons of stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with embroidery.

It's super cheap. Very colorful. Easy to store. It works great for smaller projects where that thick, chunky yarn is a little too much. It works great to add just the perfect amount of color and thin string for the balloon on this project.

I hope you love my little New Year's Penguin. It's a great, simple mini-lesson on the term "resolution" and a super cute craft all in one. The little balloon he's holding is actually a little writing activity.

I'll be giving a copy away to a random follower who comments on this post. :D

You can pick up a copy at either of my stores.

❤I LoVe your comments!❤


  1. Super cute penguin! My mom used to cross-stitch a lot so I think I need take her old embroidery floss off her hands for her...I'm sure it's just sitting in a box somewhere...waiting to be used! Thanks for the tip!

    Your penguin craft looks adorable.
