Pattern Description:

A perfect gift to make for a special tween or teen in your life!

Neck pillows are great for napping on a long car ride, resting your head to read on a plane trip, or just snuggling after a long day. Curl up with a good book and a soft animal pillow friend! These animal neck pillows are easy to sew and are so adorable and soft! This pattern includes four neck pillow variations: a pig, a dog, a bear, and an elephant. You get four patterns in one so you can sew different neck pillows as gifts for different kids!

Like all of my patterns, this sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, clear written instructions, and full-sized templates that you can print over and over. You'll be able to make these animal neck pillows with ease!
