For Christmas, my husband’s family exchanges “family gifts” which often include handmade items and snacks. This year, I made a baby penguin pillow for each family.

The pillow measures 16″x 20″ and the pillow guts, flannel and felt material were all purchased at Joann’s — on sale, of course! http://www.joann.com/
