Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic hand and machine sewing

Pattern Description:

Whether you are on the hunt for storybook animals or a modern touch to your rustic decor, these Forest Friends are perfect for you.

You can use them as pillows or dolls. If you want smaller dolls, just reduce the pattern templates by 25-35%. You can even make wool felt Christmas ornaments from them, by reducing the pattern 70% and using strips of felt for legs and tails instead of sewn pieces.

Choose a favorite fabric with little or no stretch or use any of the following:
repurposed sweater
wool felt or repurposed blanket
fleece
fake fur
flannel
corduroy
twill/drill
denim

The pattern includes illustrated pattern instructions and templates and, as always, my email in case you have any questions or are new to sewing and need help.

When you've finished your dolls, don't forget to post them in "Projects" here on Craftsy or on the www.facebook.com/SweaterDoll page.
