Inspired by all the creative lip balm cozies, I decided to make my own. I'm not exactly sure how I ended up making a penguin, but I did... And I think it's adorable because it very looks like it was made by a beginner =D I am essentially a beginner still anyway, so it's okay. This was my first lipbalm cozy and my first thing this small with this many details.

All made with RHSS yarn and Caron Simply Soft. The orange is a red heart sport weight which is like RHSS but slightly different.

Have no idea what hook I used. D? E? F? Somewhere around there.

haha, oh no! I guess that's better than some of the other things kids eat though, right?

Thank you all for the compliments! I appreciate them muchly.

If only I had the patience to make more of these because I have lots of friends who would love them. The problem I had was sewing everything together neatly. Maybe I should start trying to use thread instead of yarn?

Very cute, and Wow that you did it freehand!  Good job.  I like how his neck tips back to get to the chapstick.

I kinda think thread would show too much, through.  Maybe you already know this, but if you leave a long tail of yarn when you finish a piece, you can use that to attach it to the other pieces.  Doesn't make the sewing any easier, I reckon, but it does make for less yarn ends to weave in.

Ohh he's cute!  I like that he has a scarf.

I remember that I would always lick off chapstick when I was a kid.  Especially if it was cherry flavored.
