Kidlets and adults alike will absolutely love these cute and cozy little decor items (or even toys) made from this free animal pillow sewing pattern! These fun, easy to make pillows are the perfect size to use fat quarters, or material left over from other projects. Embroidered (or painted) facial features mean these pillows remain soft and cozy to snuggle with. The pillows close up with a ladder stitch for a clean finish.
Are you unsure sure how to sew a ladder stitch? Fear not! 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 or monsters. Whatever your heart desires!
Pattern pieces included to make bird, bunny, butterfly, and kitty pillows.
