Penguin Fun Facts

Our Penguin Puppet Sewing Pattern is the pattern of the month!  There is something about penguins that make them so cute.  Maybe it’s because they are continuously dressed in a “tuxedo.”  The purpose of that tuxedo is for camouflage. From above, its black back blends into the murky depths of the ocean. From below, its white belly is hidden against the bright surface.
