This is an emperor penguin parent and baby. The adult is complete with his bright orange markings on his head, beak and chest and the baby is covered in his downy feathers.

This little penguin uses cross stitch for the details of his markings. I like accuracy in plush animals and have made the markings and eyes like that of real emperor penguins. The baby penguin uses cross stitch for the details of his markings and the turkey work stitch to create his lush coat. Turkey work is an embroidery stitch used to create fuzzy appearances. It is sewn as a line of loops which are cut open.Why use cross stitch?  Because cross stitch allows me to make these tiny details that would be difficult to do by another method. Who says that cross stitch is only good for flat things? Now you can stitch a doll using cross stitch for the details. I also have a pattern for a baby emperor penguin in my shop.

The animals are stitched as 14 pieces each which are then cut out and sewn together.  Full assembly directions with illustrations are included.

This pattern was hand designed by a professional artist/crafts person
Finished size of the adult is approximately 7" tall to top of his head x 4.5" wide from nose tip to back of tail when worked on 14 count fabric.  The image is composed of 13 colors.
Finished size of the baby is approximately 3.5" tall to top of his head x 2" wide from nose tip to back of tail when worked on 14 count fabric.  The image is composed of 7 colors.


Each pattern contains:

* Color picture of the finished image

Design contains a lot of turkey work, some fractional stitches and backstitches, appropriate for an intermediate stitcher. Pattern may be worked on different count fabric which will result in a different sized finished product.
