These precious pillow animals are easy to make. They are fun and functional – a soft pillow for resting and an adorable toy! Your favorite little girl or boy will love carrying these sweet animals around.
The reindeer is 20” x 26” and the snowman is 20” x 23”.
Standard 12” x 16” pillow forms are used to fill the bodies of the reindeer and snowman. 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 and noses. There aren’t any attached embellishments which makes them safe for toddlers (although, toddlers should always be watched carefully with toys). The scarf is a great size for a small child. Purchase an extra 1/4 yard of fleece and make a second scarf so a little boy or girl can match his or her pillow animal.
This PDF e-pattern includes measurements for body, arm & leg rectangles; full size patterns for eyes, noses, reindeer antlers & reindeer ears; materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photographs.

I made 8 total (4 each) and sold them at a school Holiday Store. Materials were a lot more expensive than I thought since I was starting with almost nothing. I'm just beginning with sewing and I managed this project. I will do it again, but might try to "shrink" the pattern.
very cute and easily made. The kids love them!!
Turned out better than expected and I have now made a few..!
