Zoo playmat is currently being used as a jumping game. Why? Because mom hasn't made any toys for it yet. Never mind that there are other toy animals that could live on the zoo mat... It's more fun to pick a color and jump! So I took out my hooks and started the first project... A penguin - love it. It is super quick to make and adorable.
I used French knots for the eyes and embroidery thread for the detail.
It's a nice change to pick up my needle to add details to these toys.
I thought I would do a few more penguins and then work my way through the book in order, but I have a request for the giraffe and zebra next. The patterns may be found in Crochet a Zoo
