I am pleased that this project turned out so cute!
I have been working on it for quite some time,
so apologies if you are sick of seeing it!

|1.5" strips add to three sides|
Cut 5.5 inch squares and cross cut to give me the
required triangle for the bottom section.

Giving a very cheery and happy 70 inches of
reindeer having a Christmas party!
This is my third finish for the F-A-L!
Is it Christmas yet?
