  • Looking for a Penguin

    Hi all,

    I am looking for a cute penguin pattern. Ornament size with a Christmas flavor. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    I did a quick scan of The MSN site didn't see any thing.

    Rolf,
    I got a kind of cute one in a packet of patterns by Sheila Landry. It was in the Wildlife patterns 2005, packet #5 (also has a kitten, puppy, nice polar bear and hmmmm maybe a fox. I have them all cut apart (my photocopies, not the original!! [which I cannot locate in my well organized work space!!]), so I'm not sure of that last one. You can order through her web site, or I think I got mine through Scroller.

      I don't have a penguin pattern, but my daughter was a penguin for halloween. Feel free to use one of to draw your own penguin pattern
      BTW...she ran to her room and put this on right now, just for you to have a model subject !

        Hi Rolf

        Here's some further inspiration for you:



        Alternatively, you might find something suitable in your PMs.

        PS Why do penguins have short lives?

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          I was just going to suggest the same one as Sandy - I bought some patterns from Sheila yesterday and noticed the penguin.

          One advantage I find with ordering from Sheila's site rather than Scroller is that she emails the patterns as PDF files. As far as I know Scroller don't do this which is a shame.

          I had my patterns yesterday within 10 mins of ordering - you can't imrove much on that kind of service..:-)

                Sandy,

                I went to Sheila Landry's web site and found what I was looking for.
                She is an absolute jewel to deal with and getting a PDF file is great.

                Thanks again to all for your suggestions.

                      Our Christmas card puzzle for 2004 had a penguin theme. Below is a picture of the assembled card in the center with the individual pieces around it. It's possible I may have an extra card left. Rolf, send me an email at [email protected].

                        My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                        None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                        What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                        The bags seem easier on the surface.
                        But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                        Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                        As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
