Pattern Description:

These precious beetle, bee and ladybug pillows are easy to make. The bugs 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.

Sample bugs are made from fleece which makes them very soft! Cotton fabrics are used for eyes and spots on beetle and ladybug. Baby and jumbo rick rack are used for mouths and bee stripes. 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).

This eight page PDF e-pattern includes measurements for body/leg/antennae squares/rectangles, full size patterns for eyes/spots and bee wings, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.
