Our whole family loves penguins, but Henry my youngest son is their biggest fan.
Several years ago I listening to a fascinating program on Radio 4 about the plight of the penguin. It included an interview with Dr. Pablo Borboroglu founder and president of the Global Penguin Society and after the broadcast I wrote and told him how interested we were in the program and his work. We were lucky enough to meet him in London shortly after and a friendship has developed.
So it was only a matter of time before I created a little penguin. Whilst not designed to look like any specific breed (there are 18!), he captures the character of these lovely birds and has a delicately curved and pointed body and tail and a friendly face.
He is named ‘Popi’ after Pablo and we are delighted to say that Janet Clare will support the work of the Global Penguin Society in protecting penguin species across the world, donating at least 10% of the profits from the sale of this kit.
You can now create Popi with this adorable kit, which includes: > Black and white wool mix felt > 100% cotton yellow Anchor thread> > John James embroidery needle to embroider the details on the tummy > Step-by-step colour pattern card > A4 sheet of full size templates
Colour pictures are supported by step-by-step instructions to show the construction process and show details of Janet’s stitching, enabling you to confidently re-create her design.
Simple techniques mean it is great for beginners, but the project is suitable for all experience levels.
The instructions are printed on good quality 250gsm card, and the templates on 120gsm paper, all packaged in a protective sleeve so the pattern can be used again and again.
