Penguin, penguin flap your little wings

November 8, 2010

I’ve been at those socks again to make a sock Penguin, much easier than the sock dragon! The body and head are made from the toe to just before the heel of the sock, with the wings being cut from the top of the sock towards the heel. Wings are sock on the outer side and felt inside with a light layer of stuffing, white felt tummy and black felt feet. The eyes are black beads, surrounded by white felt and the nose is felt stitched in two parts and is stuffed to help keep the shape. I think I’m going to tie a red bow round his neck.

My felt penguin was made using the pattern pieces from here, but rather than glue I sewed round and turned out so mine is a slimmer penguin, I changed the nose too.

Caitlin made this penguin from a toilet roll but you could use kitchen roll or rolled card if you prefer. Idea from here but we cut out shapes ourselves.

Other Ideas

How about Penguin Oreos? I have a source for orange chocolate drops which will be perfect for these 🙂

Fancy a Linux penguin Tux? Well go here! I love the philosopy behind this one.

    I’m starting to fear for my socks….

    I might come home one day and find them turned into soft toys!

    Great idea on the eyes – and with the felt belly looks much more like a penquin than mine! – pix at Sock dragon at
