  4. Pillow stuffing
  5. Paper and marker

Step 1:Fold the paper in half and draw the first template.

Create the second template using the first template. Draw the face by drawing a big loop from the top, the hands by creating a small loop inward and the body by creating again another loop. You may draw the eyes and beak to help you visualize your penguin. Cut it out.

Step 2:Draw the second template for the face and body of the penguin.

Place it on top of the white felt fabric and use a marker to outline the paper penguin. Cut it out. For the eyes, cut out two circles from the black felt fabric, and a small triangle from the orange felt fabric for the beak.

Step 3:Place the second template on white felt and cut it out. Make eyes and beak using black and orange felt.

Back to the fleece fabric, open it up so the right side is the working area. Use hot glue to secure the body, eyes and beak in place. Apply glue around the right side leaving a space big enough for your hand to get through. Make sure to press the fabric together. Leave it for about an hour or more to dry. You may also sew the fabrics together instead of using hot glue.
