Penguin Sculpture Done



I have to show you a pic of the penguin before it goes to my dear little friend. This little fellow stands about 3.5" tall and is about 2.5" from toe to tail (the widest point on bird).

I think it would be fun to make a fabric penguin. I have seen several patterns but they are all just not what I want. I may end up drawing one out. I have to think on it more because I want it to have a little panel for the egg to be underneath at the feet like they do. I loved that movie "Happy Feet" and that documentary on penguins last year I think.

Hi Leslie! Did you make this penguin? Oh, my gosh, I'm so jealous that you can work with clay! The last time I tried clay, I think I was a freshman in high school and it made a heart ashtray, which I still have, but it's obviously, how shall I say, made by a total clay doofus!

That is so dang cute! It reminds me of my Sissy, who used to collect penguins as a child. I thought you were going to tell us that you were posting it before your dog mutilated it...ha ha.
