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.
