Pattern Description:

This is a really cute and fun penny rug (candle mat) pattern. The penguins are gorgeous and all feel like they have their own cheeky personalities... I could just pick them up for a cuddle!

This is a Christmas pattern, but because the colours are not exclusively 'festive' it can be enjoyed all year round and will add a wonderful splash of colour to your table.

This is a really fun project for any beginner to intermediate seamstress (there are full explanations for all the stitches used)
