These precious pillows are easy to make. The animals are fun and functional – a soft pillow for resting and an adorable toy. Your favorite girl or boy will love carrying these sweet animals around.

Standard 14” x 14” and 12” x 16” pillow forms are used to fill the bodies of the elephant, hippo and giraffe. Or you can use polyester fiberfill to stuff animals. Sample animals are made from fleece which makes them very soft! Cotton fabrics are used for eyes, giraffe spots and inside elephant ears. Baby rick rack is used for mouth lines on giraffe and hippo. All sewing is done by machine. There aren’t any attached embellishments which makes them safe for toddlers (although, toddlers should always be watched carefully with toys).

This PDF e-pattern includes measurements for body, leg & elephant trunk rectangles; full size patterns for eyes, ears & giraffe spots; materials list; detailed instructions written in English; clear step-by-step photographs
