Printable Penguin Pattern Template
Clear hot glue sticks
Print off pattern template on 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper.
Using fabric scissors, cut 2 of the large body pieces in a charcoal or black felt color and 1 of the smaller body pieces in a white felt color. Cut 2 eyes from black and a beak and 2 feet from orange felt.
On one side of the large charcoal/black piece, apply a bead of glue along the perimeter of the lower half as shown. Place the other large body piece on top and press to secure and form main body. MAKE SURE TO LEAVE AN OPENING AT THE TOP.
Add glue to the back side of the white piece.
Press white belly piece in place onto the penguin body. Tip: For more control and to avoid touching the hot glue, use a pair of tweezers to place smaller felt pieces.
Add a dab of glue to the white piece in the penguin face/eye area and press black eye in place. Repeat with the second eye.
Add a dab of glue to the white piece in the penguin face/nose area and press the orange beak in place.
Add glue to the back side of the orange feet pieces and press in place.
Trim any excess felt edges that are misaligned.
Stuff tiny wads of batting into the penguin.
Cut a piece of twine 8” long. Fold in half to form loop. Sandwich the loop ends inside the penguin at the top.
Glue the remaining open edges of the penguin closed. Repeat process with other penguins.
For Mama and Papa Penguins
Follow the same instructions as the baby penguins, except use black felt instead of charcoal for the large body pieces.
