“Very quick and easy and they make great rattles”
These precious monkey, bunny and sheep dolls are very easy to make. Each of the animals can be made in three different sizes – 6”, 7 1/4” and 8 1/2” tall from the top of the head to the bottom of the body. You can make an entire family of each animal type – baby, momma and papa. Your favorite little girl or boy will love carrying these sweet animal dolls around. They are perfect for little hands to hold. The eyes are embroidered and there aren’t any attached embellishments which make them safe for babies (although, babies should always be watched carefully with toys). The arms are folded ribbons.
Sample Dolls are made from chenille fabric (bodies), cotton fabric (faces and hearts) and fleece fabric (ears). Chenille and fleece are optional - you can use all cotton fabrics for dolls. Dolls can be made entirely with hand sewing – there is very little machine sewing involved for those of you that don’t have a sewing machine or enjoy sewing by hand.

Very quick and easy and they make great rattles
I was very disappointed with this pattern. The picture appeared to be bigger, then when I got the pattern, I realized it was small. I could not locate the chenille fabric and substituted another plush fabric and the result was not good. Ended up tossing the bunny and had to look for other options for easter. ):):):.
This turned out so cute and so easy to make!
