I know a little boy who loves penguins. So, when this little bird popped into my head it was impossible to resist the urge to pull out the yarn and get to work. I started by crocheting the oval center then outlined it in black and proceeded to make the head and body, attaching it to the sides of the oval. I added eyes, beak and wings, stuffed him with a pouch of plastic filler bead thingies and some stuffing to fill him in around the edges, closed the bottom, attached feet and voila! The best part? Today I'm having lunch with the little boy's mom (my sister!) so I'll get to see him and deliver it in person!
