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. The arms and legs are perfect for little hands to hold. Tie animal arms together and they can all hold hands.
A standard 14” pillow form is used to fill the body of each animal (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. Baby rick rack is used for mouth lines. 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).

These pillow pals are so fun and easy to make! We made 7 of them this past December for Christmas presents for cousins. They were a hit and my boys love there's too! We bought regular pillows at WalMart for $2.50 and used the batting inside one of those pillows to make two pillow pals . It was a really fun, inexpensive, personalized gift.
