Another lovely set of felt creatures. I have so many sets now. I love that these are also in SVG format so cut brilliantly on my Cricut.

Gayle

They are so cute! I made 5 garlands using these for work and everyone loved them! They print up beautifully! Thank you!

Cathy
★★★★★

The patterns are perfect! Printing and using the template is straightforward and the instructions are simple and easy to understand (even for a beginner). I decided to make them into little finger puppets and they look so sweet. Thank you!

Alex

I'm new to embroidery and this design was so much fun to do! I loved learning new stitches and the beautiful final result. Thank you!
