Penguin Chick Sewing KIt


This roly-poly bird may be small in size but it can be big in personality! Although they're eager to have their turn in the water, it's safety first and the removable water wings will help keep them afloat. Pose the flippers to create some surprisingly sassy expressions. :D

Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, sheets of wool blend felt, pair of 7mm safety eyes, embroidery floss, needle and pins. I describe it as Confident Beginner, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.

Finished Penguin Chick measure approx. 5" x 3" (13cm x 8cm).

Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing. It also helps keep the shipping cost much lower as it can travel Canada Post letter mail.

These pieces are perfect either as whimsical decorative pieces or to be used in gentle play. They are not recommended for small children.
