Download and print out the templates. Cut out each shape from the bottom of the page.
Trace with a pencil the shape on the felt sheets and cut them out.
For the penguin, glue already the white part of the body on the black and sew the beads on the front part of the body. For the snowman, sew the beads and the mouth on the front part of the body.
Sew the 2 parts of the body together using the blanket stitch (see details in the post), leaving a 5 cm (2 inch) opening gap.
Fill the body with fiberfill stuffing (pillow filling), then close the opening continuing with the blanket stitch, and sew the ribbon on top.
Glue all the other details on the front of the decoration. Optional: cut a 20 cm (8 inch) long strip from the red felt to make a little scarf for the penguin and/or the snowman. Use the fabric glue to fix it.
