The Christmas softies are fun and simple to make! They are stitched entirely by hand, using a whip stitch around the felt edges, a running stitch across the arms and legs, and a stem stitch for the mouths on the gingerbread man/reindeer/snowman. The body-head-arms-legs-&-ears/antlers on reindeer are all together in one pattern shape for each softie - they are not attached separately which can be time consuming and difficult. They are made from scraps of felt. Enlarge or reduce patterns to make the softies different sizes. Safety eyes are used for samples - other options for the eyes, are to make them using embroidery, paint or felt. This PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns to make four Christmas softies - a gingerbread man, penguin, reindeer and snowman; a materials list; detailed instructions written in English; and clear step-by-step photos. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic Hand Sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The finished softies are approximately 3.5" x 5.5".
