Lay felt penguin pieces together and punch holes around the outside.

Cut large belly oval, eyes and feet from the pattern and trace onto sticky-back felt. Cut out and attach to the body of the penguin.

Use yarn and a large-eye plastic sewing needle to make a running stitch around the hole punches. Leave a 4" opening for stuffing.

Fill penguin with fiberfill. Finish sewing together and tie ends of yarn together.
