If you remember, I posted about a set of fleece blankets I made for my kids a while back, as well as a monkey to match my son’s blanket. Well, I said back then that I was going to make a penguin to match my daughter’s blanket.
I made it in time for her birthday which was back in November, but I’m finally getting to tell you about it.
The penguin has a pink beak and pink feet. Doesn’t he look liked he’d waddle if he could walk? My daughter has decided to name him “Penguino,” which is Spanish for penguin. He’s a boy in spite of the pink accents. He’s got a face to match the applique from the blanket.
I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn in Cream, Black and Pink. The scarf used Parfait and Mixed Berries. It turned out way cute and he’s good for snuggling. I also made him a hat that matches the scarf, but it disappears. Maybe I should have sewn it on!
