Sew Your Own Valentine Penguin

Vantine Penguin Sewing Project

I have a big crush on those old vintage valentines that show up on Pinterest this time of year.  I wish I had a bundle of those pretties to send out to all my family and friends!  When I saw this one, it reminded me of a gingercake pattern.

It turned out so cute!  I love his scarf and hat so much.  And then the heart (made from using the cut out belly!) really makes him special.


U R Cool Valentine

The Valentine version of the Annie’s penguin has a heart shaped belly, scraf, hat and is holding a cute little stuffed heart.  Do you want to make one too?  It is really easy.  If you already own the Annie’s Penguin Pattern, simply use these FREE bonus instructions to convert your Penguin into this Valentine version.
