Plush Penguin.

I made many mistakes sewing this plush, but that means I’ve learnt alot in the process, right?

Made from grey felt wool that is soft to touch. I chose a music cotton fabric for the inside of the wings for added interest.

 The wings called for topstitching. Haven’t done that in a while!

 The torso is a off-white soft, velvety fabric.

 The beanie is made from the sleeve of my stripey jumper. I also used a snowflake split-pin as embellishment.

 One edge is already finished (originally the end of the sleeve of the jumper), so I only had to gather the cut edge then turn it right side out.  The snowflake will hide the top anyway!
