Hey everyone! I technically already created a penguin plush back in March of 2015 when I did Gunter from Adventure Time. But I was still getting requests for a penguin, haha! 😀 So I figured I should tackle a more classic penguin look, possibly with a different pose?

This project was bound to come up eventually ^-^ This purse is a tribute to my all-time favorite Sanrio character, Bad Badtz Maru, a mischievous little penguin that always has a angry look on his face. His designs are usually covered with an XO motif, as in Japanese that actually means badtz maru, and is a way of saying wrong or right, like how we mark things with an X or a √ (check).
The fabric I used was a plaid that was leftover from a dress I made back in college. Unfortunately, the fabric was a little scratchy, so I looked forward to using up this fabric on something besides clothing. I love the contrast upper band as well as the straps that loop through the grommets. After finishing the bag I realize it might have worked much better as a color block kind of design, where each piece was a different solid color. Maybe I’ll try that next time! 😀
