Description: A large penguin pillow or bag with smaller versions. All birds can be made from super bulky or worsted weight yarns.

We’ve had a lot of fun with these stuffies: https://youtu.be/Jr2a7G43RqY

I think this would be an adorable baby shower gift. The little birds could hold diapers, baby clothes, toys. I would suggest crocheting the eyes on instead of buttons. As a toddler they could then use the bags to carry their toys or mom could make them into pillows.
