How to sew a stuffed penguin on a whim -
Remember the turtle giveaway - I finally remembered to draw a winner - via Random.org, lucky comment #5:
Meanwhile, I love those little turtles. I whipped up a couple of more for my girls. And so my 8 year old boy says "when are you going to sew me something" - and he's right - occasionally I sew something for the 2 yr old boy, but an older boy - what is there?!? nothing. So I say alright, let's make you a turtle. Nope. He want a penguin - he has this thing for penguins. So I say okay, because what else can I do. And I make up how to sew a stuffed penguin. All for him. Here we go:
Cut out 2 body pieces, 2 black wings, 2 white wings (slightly smaller than the black), 2 triangle things, 1 rectangle for the bottom, 4 feet shapes and 1 triangle nose out of orange, and a white belly. If you're interested I could trace the pieces on paper and upload so you can print out a pattern - let me know.
--Then sew a triangle to each end of the rectangle, so you get a shape that looks like a swing hanging from a tree - here it is on it's side:
All from scraps laying around - -
