“these are so much fun to make and give.”
These adorable animals are simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using the whip stitch around the felt edges, and straight stitches for details on faces. Instructions are included to make a pig, chick, frog, dog, cow, sheep, bunny, chicken and cat. Finished animals are 7” x 7 1/2” or smaller. Hearts are 1 3/4” x 2”. The animals can be made with or without the pockets. The only materials you will need are felt, sewing thread/embroidery floss and polyester stuffing. Optional materials are a small fabric rectangle if you are making a pocket (or a felt rectangle can be substituted for the fabric) and fabric glue. Enlarge or reduce patterns to make animals different sizes.
This six page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make all nine animals; a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos.
Copyrights protect this pattern from being reproduced in any media format to be resold. Permission is given for the pattern to be used to make and sell the finished animals in limited quantities.

These critters are fantastic. I stitched together 2 of each and donated them to A Woman's Shelter for any little ones to enjoy for Easter. Thanks for this cute :)
Turn out cute.
I enlarged the pattern a bit and am making them into "boo boo buddies" to either heat up in the microwave, or freeze in the freezer to put on the little scrapes for grandkids. I used fleece for mine, so I sewed them on the machine so the flax seed doesn't come out. They really come out cute. The kids love them for headaches and little tummy troubles too.
Easy pattern and quick to sew up.
Too cute to pick just one! Easy to make by the dozens
Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous pattern. These ladies create first rate patterns that make wonderful items. Adorable little animals!
