New Plush Debut etc.

Those of you who have been with me a while know that I started my journey into seriously making plush with Penguins. Remember Herman? Well someone once commented that they thought I should make my penguins rounder and fatter, and after much thought I agreed and worked up a new design. I know I just can't stop making birds!

The left one is the prototype of the new design. Hated the face but liked the feet. The one on the right is the final design. I choose to leave out the feet because they were too time consuming to do.
New design next to original penguins. Interesting progression, huh?

I went nuts and made them in tons of colors. Please let me know what you think about them. Worth my time and energy? Cute or not?
On a completely different note I wanted to quick show you the Graduation Announcement my daughter and I worked on together. We incorporated Kindergarten, 8th Grade and High School graduation photos to send to family and friends.

Ooooo love your new design of your roly poly like someone else said...super cute! I love the feet on your other one. I know it is time consuming but maybe try adding a set of feet to see how it looks on your new design? Love the graduation announcement for your daughter. She is so beautiful. :)
