Make these adorable Cute Critter animal pals with this PDF sewing pattern. Cute Critters can be made as little toys or you can turn them into key chains for a backpack or holiday ornaments for your tree. This pattern includes an owl, a mouse, a fox, and a panda. All four animals are based on the same basic pattern pieces so once you've made one you'll be able to easily make them all. A great DIY gift to create for a child, a friend, or to make for yourself! This sewing pattern is perfect for beginners. It involves sewing a straight stitch on the sewing machine, basting, and some simple hand stitching. To make the Cute Critters into key chains (perfect for a school backpack) add a 4-pack of keychain clips: Like all of my patterns, this sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, clear written instructions, and full-sized templates. This pattern also includes great tips on how to accurately cut felt. You'll be able to easily make critters just like in the photo! The finished toys will be approximately 6 inches tall x 4 inches wide. To make one Cute Critter you'll need: felt scraps, some fiberfill stuffing, and coordinating thread.

I strive to make my patterns easy to follow by including step-by-step photos all along the way and writing clearly. My toys are clever and fun to sew. I think you're going to love making them! You are welcome to sell the toys made from my patterns! Since 2005 I've been sharing my ideas on design, technique and the culture of craft through my blog ( I have a master's degree in education from Harvard and taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls. My daughters, now age 8, 6, and 18 months, are the happy recipients of all of her prototypes! <br> My first book, <i>The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew,</i> was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011 and I have a new book coming out about soft toy design!
