  • Thread a needle with a long piece of thread. If using embroidery floss, seperate the strand of floss into two sections (each section will have 3 strings of floss). Use one section for sewing.
    Tie a knot on the end. Stitch face to the front of the penguin softie. Tie a knot on the back when you are finished and cut the thread.

You can sew your entire project or glue your entire project. We used a combination of sewing and gluing. Hot glue works best when gluing felt, but fabric glue is safer for kids (prevents burns). If using fabric glue, allow some time for the pieces to dry.
