These adorable penguin and bird dolls are very easy to make. The dolls are 8 1/2” across by 11 1/2” tall (this measurement does not include the penguin’s hat). They are made from fleece (except for the beak and inside body shape) which make them soft and cuddly. They’re perfect for little hands to hold. Buttons are used for the eyes on the sample dolls – if you are making the dolls for children under the age of three, you may want to embroider eye circles or sew fabric circles, using the same technique as the cheeks and inside body.
This seven page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.
