- With the foam block underneath, form a ball with your felting needle, leaving some loose felt on one side.
- Put this felted ball on top of your egg, with the loose felt coming down around the body.
- Fold the beak felt in half, glue it into a cone shape, then glue it onto the head.
- Wrap black roving felt up around the beak and secure underneath with the felting needle.
- Take the remaining loose ends of your black felt and make half circles around where the eyes will be placed.
- Fill in the rest of the head with black felt.
- Continue to fill in the head until you are unable to see any of the white felt underneath.
- The black felt should form a hood with white half circles for the eyes.
- Glue the eyes to your head.
- Then glue a light gray wing under a white wing.
- Next, glue the feet and wings to the body as shown.
- Cut slits at the ends of the scarf and wrap around the penguin’s neck.
- Place the small iceberg piece on top of the larger one and use a running stitch to attach along the edge.
