Did you know our Henry is penguin mad? No? Well, he is really is!
So when I saw the penguin family on Basic Grey’s booth at Quilt Market I couldn’t buy a pattern quickly enough.
I wanted a very simple, vintage look for my penguin- sorry! Henry’s penguin- so I dyed some wool blanket and just whip stitched the pieces together raw edges and all. I made the largest size, Peter and he was easily stitched in one evening.
Henry has been waiting for a whole 3 days for his penguin to be finished and this afternoon instead of working as planned I went and bought some stuffing and found some button eyes, sat down and got him done.
Penguin is waiting at the kitchen table for Henry to come home from school. I am waiting to see his reaction and my work will just have to wait that little bit longer (again).
But there won’t always be a penguin mad boy in the house will there?
