Well hello there Mr. Penguin, aren’t you adorable?! When our designer Krista created this little beauty, we could be heard through the building “oohing” and “aahing” at just how crazy cute he is! Not only does he rate very highly in the cutie stakes, he is also super-simple to make at home – which we love! Along with our printable template, all you need to make this cute penguin stuffie is sheets of felt in black, white, orange and teal, a bag of stuffing, embroidery thread and a couple black buttons for his eyes. The project calls for simple blanket stitching and a running stitch so this is a great afternoon DIY project or is ideal for our younger crafters out there. We recommend using a low temperature glue gun to attach the wings and feet but you could also stitch them on by hand – just make sure you supervise any little ones with the glue gun!
