Jessica from Me Sew Crazy shares a free pattern and tutorial on her blog for making this sweet penguin softie. The little penguin is inspired by the penguin in the book Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers. The pattern is intended for stretch knit fabrics. She also includes a pattern to make a little helmet (not shown here) for the penguin to wear. Get the pattern and how-to.
