I do not usually make small toys. The first reason being the detail in the stitching and the tight spaces drives me nuts. But I always WANT to make little softies. So I agreed to do a second pattern for the Sew Fab Pattern Bundle! This is my version of the Poppy and Pip penguins from Betz White.
We love Penguins around here. From Mumble and his happy feet to Pingu in his claymation world. This pattern is great! It comes together from all sorts of materials easily. Take my project:
I didnt have any good and penguin-y colors of felt on hand. My felt stash is all bright and playmat colored. While I have nothing against a good ol green and pink penguin, I wanted to stick to the true nature of a penguin. I DID have black minky! Other than being very messy when working with, it makes this little guy so much snugglier. I used the little bits of Orange felt I had left for the feet and beak, and I used some scraps of Menagerie for the belly and the face. There’s an owl on his belly and that makes me laugh a little…
I am taking a small risk of fraying in the straight cotton on the belly as it is hand stitched down, but, I think it will fair well.
