Concerned Santa

My friends and i had an early gift exchange so I finally get to post this photo! I made my friend the patchwork pillow below. I was afraid it looked too pop-corny, but on her couch with the other pillows it fit in perfectly. šŸ™‚
To make this 12″x12″ pillow, I used the same pattern from the lavender sachets tutorial except I started with four 7.5″ squares and then sewed the blocks together (2 on top and 2 on the bottom).
On a totally different note, I stayed up all night working on these Santa cookies and I just had to show them off! I confess that a night away from the sewing machine was nice. šŸ™‚ They’re made from Nutter Butter cookies, with each end dipped in melted white chocolate. After dipping the ends in chocolate, let them dry on parchment paper. For the hat I mixed red food coloring in the white chocolate, then I used M&M minis for Santa’s nose and mini chocolate chips for his eyes. I’m happy with how they turned out except Santa looks so concerned. He’s missing a smile, but I’m out of ideas on what to use. Any edible ideas to put a smile on Santa’s face?
Happy crafting and baking!
