Hello Craftsters!
This is the pillow/ felt animals/ finger puppet set that I made for my nephew for Christmas.   I made a pillow case for a 21" square pillow form with 9 pockets.  Each pocket holds a different forest animal made of felt.  I designed all the patterns in AutoCAD myself, so I'm pretty proud of how they turned out.
Here's the pillow with all the animals.  If I did it again, I'd make the pockets lower on the pillow - the animals stick out too much on the top row of pockets.


Fawn and Bunny:


Skunk and Beaver:


Owl and Frog:


Bear and Butterfly:


Moose (this one might be my favourite):


It was my husband's idea to make them all into finger-puppets, so I sewed a little bit of coordinating felt on the back of each of them to make them all into finger puppets.


My nephew liked the pillow part, he might be a little young for the puppets yet, but my bro and sis in law seemed to really appreciate the gift and the fact that it was home-made, so that was pretty rewarding.  Grin  I feel really lucky to have two little nephews to make things for.
