Penguin and Egg Reversible Toy

from Abby Glassenberg Design
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Penguin and Egg Reversible Toy
Penguin and Egg Reversible Toy
Penguin and Egg Reversible Toy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basting
  • Sewing a straigth stitch on a sewing machine
  • Sewing two pieces right sides together

Pattern Description:

This toy is reversible! First, it's an egg just waiting to hatch. Then, turn it inside out, and it transforms into an irresistible little penguin!

Like all of my patterns, this sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, written instructions, and templates. You'll be able to make this adorable Penguin & Egg Reversible Softie with ease!

This project comes together with just a little bit of fabric and a little bit of time, and the results are so adorable. I think you're going to love this toy!

I recommend using fleece for this project because it is soft, a bit stretchy, vibrantly colored, and inexpensive. Other fabrics may be substituted, but fleece is recommended.

The Penguin & Egg Reversible Softie pattern was designed by me, Abby Glassenberg, and is copyrighted 2013. All rights reserved. It is illegal to distribute this pattern electronically or in hard copy without my permission.

Thank you!
