I'm so excited to share with you my very first REAL pattern, the book buddy. Sure, I've done templates before. And printables too. But nothing like this. This guy is a whopping 17 pages of illustrations and detailed instructions. This is a real, honest-to-goodness pattern, and I hope you like it! This little guy--a hamster--nestles into his little book bed, complete with a little pillow. He's made mostly of felt. His ears are printed with a graphic design that is included in the pattern. You can use the design I included to print on printable fabric sheets, or you can use another fabric of your choice. The pattern includes tips and general instructions for carving out your book as well. This pattern is intended for the home sewer. If you would like to make book buddies and sell them, whether it be at a craft booth or personal online shop, you are welcome to use this pattern as long as you credit Snugglebug University for the design (no mass production though, please). If you have any questions please just contact me. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic cutting and sewing skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Hamster is about 4.5 inches tall and a little under 3 inches wide
