For a while now I have been wanting to make a softie pattern for beginners. This pattern is suitable for beginner sewers and also children's classes. I was inspired to make these little guys while on a visit to Phillip Island recently. It is so cute to go and visit the Penguin Parade down at Phillip Island. Now I won't have to drive so far to see my own Penguin Parade! I will be releasing this pattern under the "Melly and me" label in the next week so look out for it in stores. I have made 10 penguins so far and am feeling the urge to make some more. They are so cute and if I keep going, I could open my own tourist attraction!
