Welcome to the Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

It is not required that you become a follower of each blog, but we would love if you did!

The project I am sharing with you is a gift I made for my boyfriend, Robert.
He loves penguins.
Last year I crocheted him one.
This year I decided to make him a unique one out of sequins!

This cute little guy started out as just a plain styrofoam ball.
I then took sequins pins, added white seed beads and white sequins.
I pinned them in an oval onto the ball to make the stomach area.
I covered the rest of the styrofoam ball with sequins pins with black seed beads and black sequins.

I then cut the feet and beak out of orange felt.
The wings I cut out of black felt.
I adhered them to the penguin with plain sequins pins.
I attached google eyes with glue dots.

I hope you enjoyed my project!
