Christmas in July!

Last Christmas, I made a flock of penguin card holders to give away as gifts and graduated to matching zipper cases and then to snow people and Santa zipper cases (all in-the-hoop designs from Embroidery Garden). These little guys and gals are so addictive and fun to make! And they can be customized and personalized so easily just by changing up a few fabrics and thread colors. So of course I had to make up a bunch for my Christmas in July Sale on ArtFire.

These zipper cases are adorable as decorations on Christmas gifts and can be used in place of wrapping paper, boxes and bags for your stocking stuffers and gift cards. They can be re-gifted and reused, hung on the tree, or used to carry your cell phone, camera or other gadget around the holidays.

Christmas Plaid Snow Guy Zipper Case
This is the Christmas Plaid Snow Guy - his hat is green and red plaid cotton fabric, his scarf is red grosgrain ribbon and he has a small glittery red pom-pom attached to his zipper pull. He stands just about 7 inches tall by 4 inches wide across his belly. The narrowest part of his neck is about 3 inches across.

He has a coordinating Snow Girl with a Red & Green hat, who hasn't been properly photographed yet.

Mets Fan Snow Couple Zipper Cases
Of course, I had to make up a pair of Mets Fans - the Snow Girl (left) has a blue and orange ribbon scarf tied in a bow and an orange bead attached to her zipper pull.

The Mets Fan Snow Guy has a blue and orange ribbon scarf tied in a knot and a baseball bead attached to his zipper pull.

Did you notice that they both have blue hats with the orange 'dot' on top, just like the real baseball caps?

This couple is available separately, or as a pair. I'll even make them up in other team colors, if requested.

Purple Snow Couple Zipper Cases
This is another snow couple, done in shades of purple. Why purple? Well, July is blueberry month and I've been making blueberry ice cream, which is purple!

The Pretty Purple Snow Girl has a soft lavender ribbon scarf and a bit of ribbon attached to her zipper pull. Her coordinating Purple Snow Guy has a hat made of dark purple and blue cotton fabric, and a dark purple ribbon scarf and zipper pull.

All America Santa Zipper Case
We can't forget about Santa! In July we celebrate Independence Day, and this All American Santa is a patriot!

Santa's measurements are the same as the Snow Guys and Gals above. His suit is made of cotton fabric printed in a medley of American flags. He has a tiny jingle bell tied to his zipper pull.

Santa Zipper Case
Santa also has a variety of more traditional red suits - this one is the Marbled Red Santa, made of red cotton fabric.

He also comes in a shimmery red cotton fabric and red cotton with tiny gold dots. And we may be adding to his wardrobe as we get closer to Christmas.

By the end of the month, I'd like to add some of the Penguin zipper cases and card holders to my shop.
