- I made a template by tracing his foot onto paper & then cutting it out.
- Then, I used scrap pieces of fabric to make the penguin body (the white belly is actually an old t-shirt!). Follow the instructions on the Heat-N-Bond; iron the wrong side of the fabric to the non-paper side of the Heat-N-Bond.
- After it has cooled, tear the paper off and pin the footprint template you made to the fabric (see photo above) and then cut around it.
- Next, iron the footprint to the towel.
- I did the same with a white fabric oval, which I then ironed on top of the black footprint to make the penguin’s belly and eyes.
- The eyes, feet, and beak are painted on.
- I finished by writing on the year.
My toddler’s favorite animal is (still!) penguins. I thought it would be cute to make another Footprint Penguin Keepsake with him and chose to make a Christmas Towel. I found the towel at Dollar Tree and used Heat-N-Bond to adhere the penguin to the towel.
