I swear to you, this will be the last of the Sheblogs Sheblogs March of the Penguins! I’m drowning in penguins!

BUT! I FINALLY finished the pattern, and I’m super excited about it! The pattern includes pieces for both a plushie size penguin and a pillow size penguin!

I know there was some debate about the name on my Little Tiny Facebook Page…the Black-tie Optional Penguin or Lewis the Penguin, but in the end, I went with The Plucky Penguin because it just felt right.

And I mean, look at these suckers! Aren’t they plucky?!

They will all be on sale at Craft Lake City. Craft shows are the only places I sell ACTUAL tangible stuffed things. But if you REALLY REALLY want one you see pictured, let me know, and perhaps we can reserve it for you!

I made this yellow duo over the weekend, and I really, really like them. Their beaks and feet are made with 100% wool felt, and their tummies have the most fabulous stripes that I made pop by reinforcing the otherwise lightweight fabric.

I think they look fetching with the teal fleece/gold leather duo.

But then when you put them all together things get REALLY crazy.

Digging the antlers? I’ve got huge plans for them!

Also, I’m like the meanest mom ever because I can’t let Ginger play with the penguins! They are all over the house and all she wants to do is shove those beaks in her mouth. I let her play with them A BIT to take some pictures for the pattern. I guess she can play with them if it’s for work. Kid’s gotta earn her keep somehow.



Anyway, The Plucky Penguin Pattern is here! And I promise you NO MORE PENGUINS!

Unless of course you really, really want more. Then maybe something can be arranged.

    When? When do you have the time to make such things? I am so amazed. I want to make them, but lack the sewing machine skills. And the sewing machine.

    We're coming to Utah from Aug 16th to the 30th and would love to see you guys. Will you be in Provo during that time?

    What could be better than naming it The Plucky Penguin?! Genius. Also, that yellow duo is TO DIE for. I'm sad I haven't made spontaneous stop-by's at your house for a few days and missed out on all the penguin action! What's my problem!? At least it's comforting to know that you read my potty training post on the toilet.I'm glad we're staying in touch one way or another.

    On a happier note, maybe if Cole wakes up from his name early we'll stop by. I'll call you.
