Percy the Penguin

Everyone welcome Percy the Penguin! I was asked by one of my work colleagues to design a penguin. After some time, and some fogging, I am very pleased to share Percy with everyone. It has been lots of fun designing Percy. The best part about making him was the look on my colleagues face!
I hope you enjoy making Percy as much as I have!

Once finished Percy measures to be 14.5cm tall and 7cm wide.

After each piece has been finished off, its time to sew it all together! Before sewing together I suggest using sewing pins to pin each piece together. This will allow you to see the finished product before you have sewn all of the pieces together!

I have not used safety eyes as all of my products are used by children under the age of three. Instead I have used Black Yarn and sewn on all features 😊

I would LOVE to see your finished product! Please comment a picture below, or send a picture! 😊
