There’s something about penguins. The way they waddle and the humourous way they dive into the water. They are just such comical little fellas. A penguin softie was always going to be on the cards. And this little penguin softie is as cute as they get. Hope you like my little penguin!
Here’s a photo tutorial for my free penguin pattern so you can learn to sew a simple penguin softie.
This tutorial has been put together to accompany my “how to sew a penguin softie” video I made for Youtube thanks to a generous grant from Waverley council.
What you need to make a penguin softie
8″ x 8″ black felt
7″ x 6″ white felt
5″ x 2″ orange felt
1/2 cup rice
What you do
Download and cut out the Penguin pattern templates.
Use the paper templates to cut out shapes from felt.
Pin the two sides of the body together.
Sew the two sides together leaving an opening for stuffing.
Pour in half a cup of rice or any other weighting material.
Add polyester fibrefill as stuffing.
Sew the opening closed.
Glue on eyes and feet. Glue beak onto black felt head marking and then glue onto body to hold in place.
And now all you have to do is give him or her a name.
And if you’d like another penguin tutorial you can look at Pengi too.
Happy sewing and let me know if you have any sewing questions.
