Three little penguins going for a walk... Here are the hama beads penguins I made yesterday, after my toilet paper roll penguins had decided to go and visit the world!
I often craft with fuse beads, at every moment of the year, Christmas, Halloween, Easter… and I thought these penguins would be perfect for a winter craft! These 3D penguins can easily stand on their feet, but I hope they won’t go away too!
Have you noticed they look similar but are all different? There’s a big one, a medium and a small penguin, each of them with the same head, but not the same chest or wings.
As I wanted my penguins to be tridimensionnal, I left holes (3 beads) for the beak and the tail, to insert them afterwards.
Don’t pay attention to the hole in the corner! I just saw on the pictures that I had forgotten a bead!
Here is the entire pattern where you can see the black tail (with 3 white beads), the orange beak, and the orange feet .
I use to iron both sides of my designs for them to keep flat, then I let them under serveral heavy books till they’re cold.
Here are the pieces of my 3d penguin project!
I place beak in the hole of the head…
Then I add the tail, in the hole of the chest, and glue the feet around the orange beads.
My big penguin can perfectly stand up, thanks to the tail that touches the floor.
Here is the bottom of the second penguin I made, a little less tall than the former.
Let’s iron, get cool, and build the second penguin… Here it is !
Then I made a third penguin, smallest than the others. Here is the pattern with hama beads.
As soon as it was finished, my third penguin went out with the big and medium penguins…
“Hey ! You won’t go and visit the world ?” “No ! Don’t worry ! We just go shopping ! It’s cold out here and we need hats and scarfs !”
I hope they’ll come back ! Otherwise, I will have to craft other penguins, with hat and scarf !
