Plucky Penguin softie doll can be made from many types of new and upcycled fabrics including fleece, felted wool, twills, and flannels - you choose! This is an easy to make and quick DIY sewing pattern. Instructions are fully illustrated.
Pattern may be made larger or smaller. You can adjust the size to create a pillow or to populate your own 'march of the penguins' or for Christmas tree ornaments.
You need only basic sewing supplies, fabrics, and stuffing to make this doll. Although you may machine sew the doll, hand sewing is required to attach beak, wings, and feet.
The Plucky Penguin shown was made from all repurposed materials: wool suiting, felted wool blanket, and wool sweater.

SweaterDoll was born from a love of home production, thrift, and reuse. Inspired by the reuse of clothing and linens in patchwork quilts, my toys and patterns are also rooted in reuse of available textiles and natural stuffing materials. I am an American ex-pat living and loving and teaching doll making classes in Sydney, Australia.
