These little guys are helping me bust through some of my leftover Christmas fabric.

They're surprisingly simple to make. Only downside: Each one takes 180 pins. Not a typo.
Two down, many more to come, I'm sure! But first, I'm going to bind my Christmas quilt. Yippee!

So cute! I'm scare about the pin part though. Too many little kids around here that would try to pull those pins out.

How awesome are those?!?! What great way to use those left over pieces from Christmas quilts. 180 pins? Wow. How long are they taking you to make?
