Pootle The Penguin is the latest addition to the Sewyeah Magical Menagerie. First there was Huxley the Hare, next came Dina the Dala Horse and then Bobbin the Reindeer, now Pootle has come to join the gang.


Pootle is a baby Emperor Penguin, with waddling feet and a shiny black beak. He is embroidered with a tasteful Christmas jumper inspired pattern and the addition of beads and sequins make him look like he’s got a little frosty bottom.  HIs colourful earmuffs help keep him warm, or maybe he is listening to his favourite audiobook. When finished he stands around 12cm tall. Pootle is suitable for confident beginners and beyond. The construction of the penguin can easily be done in an afternoon. 


He is the ideal Christmas or winter birthday gift. (though he is not suitable for small children due to the sequins and beads) He would also look wonderful as part of your festive tablescape or nestled in your tree. 


THERE  IS ALSO A FULL KIT FOR THIS PROJECT AVAILABLE HERE including precut felt pieces, threads, beads and sequins.
