all I did was cut 4 triangles - two red, two black (the penguin I was doing was a baby, and it had a black beak)

I sewed a black to a red and left the side that was going against the face open.  Then I flipped it inside out and pressed it.  I did that with both the top and bottom of the beak.  So now I have two triangular "pockets".

I put a little stuffing inside each, then sewed along that face-edge of both halves like the binding of a book with an overhand stitch and stitched it to the face at the same time, if that makes sense.

Hope that helps some!

I don't have pictures of me doing it with fabric, but here's a diagram I made in MS Paint.  Sorry for its poor quality, but hopefully it'll get the idea across:



Here's the direct link to it in case it's not legible or clear enough here: http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o252/pinktoque/craftster/bird_beak_diagram.png

good luck!

np Smiley glad it made sense!

I'm sure there are many ways to make a beak - this may not be the best way, but it's the way I've always done it hehe

Alternately, you can make just ONE of the little pockets and stuff it and sew it on if you don't want the "open mouth" look.  Here's an example of how the above would look if I just used one of the pockets (used dual colors for the example, you'd probably want to use the same color for the upper and lower beak)
