These creatures are colorful, full of personality and texture, and fun to make! With several options included, you can make your own unique stuffed creature toy! I've included ideas for boys & girls, and even an option for making a little Viking Creature! They are wonderful for children big and small! Make them from fleece and other new or recycled fabrics.

I've been sewing and crafting since I was a little girl growing up on a small farm in the woods of northern Minnesota, USA. In recent years I have focused on creating whimsical patterns that are inspired by my love of nature.
