I had to play as Carolyn puts it. It is nice to play.... I get kinda cranky when I have to do tooooo much routine same old same old. So I drew up this penguin. I don't have any Mylar....So I thought yes I do. I grabbed up potato chip bag cut some of top washed the piece. Then stitched this little guy out. He does shine and he has a couple bag edges that I need to go back and trim. I may use him on another Christmas idea or so.

highlandermom by highlandermom 23 Oct 2013

I know what you mean we don't eat them but couple times year it seems and with Fall outings they come in handy. So had bag and thought food mylar bags, birthday balloons are mylar too I believe. Just the craft mylar you get more color to choose from.

Thanks Vicki, I was very pleased with my fun time as it was a Ma Bell ringing moment all day and even this evening. I know we all get them kind of days. Some people talk on phone all the time but I am not to big on that.

I like the way you think.if you don't have this use that. I had no fiberfill so used a bed pillow to stuff my Santa and snowman,whatever works,

Great mind you have and I laughed thinking of stuffing around here. My hubby wears out a pillow very fast. I tell him he squeezes the life out of them pillows. I then come snag em up and like you they fill whatever crops up in my clubhouse.
