These fun, easy to make pillows are the perfect size to use fat quarters, or material left over from other projects.

This
tutorial will show you how it’s done.
This tutorial is only a baseline to start with. Get creative! Play around with different facial features. Embellish your pillows with ribbon or lace. Use yarn to give them hair or add a bow. Make them look like zombies… Whatever your heart desires!
Animal Pillow Patterns Fabric Requirements
You will need less than 1/4 yard for each of the sizes. The pattern pieces do not take up the full width of the fabric though so you might find you can squeeze them out of items you want to upcycle, or leftovers from other projects!
