When this pattern from Bead and Button showed up I couldn’t resist it. My mother loves penguins – she calls them ‘pinguins’. I made one for her birthday.
The finished beaded penguin is just over one inch high. It has a little tail which means it can be stood up. If you were feeling really silly you could make two and have a pair of ‘pinguin’ earrings. Or make one for a pendant.
They make up really quickly so you can have one finished in an evening.
As I am a quilter I had plenty of batting scraps to fill the body. Fill it firmly so the body stands up straight.
