Kids will absolutely love these cute and cozy little pillows 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 cozy to snuggle with. These pillows close up with a ladder stitch for a clean finish. Not 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 (for the boys!). Whatever your heart desires!
Pattern pieces included to make the following animals – Bird, Bunny, Butterfly and Kitty.
What you’ll need:
- Quilting cotton (or any other woven fabric similar in weight) is perfect for this project
- Poly-Fill (stuffing)
- Optional: Ribbon, lace, embroidery floss or fabric paint (for facial features)
Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.
We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.
