This little fellow is definitely a penguin with attitude – and he’s not just for Christmas either! Make him from the softest of minky and plush fabrics to delight a loved one (or if you’re not too confident with these fabrics, then he’d look great in felt too). Working with slippery faux fur can be a bit of a challenge, and of course it’s not possible to use Bondaweb for fusing your applique shapes as you can’t apply a hot iron to these fabrics. So his front is built up onto plain cotton fabric and his back stabilised with lightweight interfacing before he is stitched together – there are only 2 body pieces. Add plenty of temporary fabric adhesive spray and these simple shapes are easy to combine.
He stands around 16″ tall.
