Here's an idea for a felt penguin softie for kids to make. Hang it from the Christmas tree, make one for friends, or enjoy it all year round...
You will need:
Brown and red felt
Needle and thread
Pair of wiggle eyes
Our felt penguin softie - fun at Christmas or all year round
Cut 2 penguin body shapes from black felt using our penguin template to help.
If you plan on hanging the penguin, cut a length of ribbon and slip the ends between the two felt bodies so the ribbon hangs from the top of the head.
Cut two feet from yellow felt and sandwich between the two bodies so they stick out from the bottom of the penguin.
With a small running stitch sew the bodies together, securing the ribbon and feet in place. Leave a gap with which to stuff the penguin.
Fill the penguin with toy stuffing. Be careful not to overfill. The penguin should sit fairly flattish. Sew the gap closed.
Glue on the eyes. Cut and glue on a beak. For the tummy, cut a yellow felt oval and glue on to the tummy. Cut a smaller white oval and glue this on top of the yellow.
