My first polar buddy is a baby penguin. New design. He measures 7.5 inches. I have used a fantastic Schulte alpaca. It is very soft and beautiful. The only thing is, you have to take care and put anti-fray around all the edges because it frays very easily. Nevertheless...I'm going to buy more, because I fell in love with it!
And here he is, Puck the baby penguin!
His wings are wired, so they can be folded and posed.
I gave him a spine, and he can move his head up and down...
This pictures shows better his cute little tail.
I'm now working on his friend, a baby seal. Another new design, another challenge!
