Made themed gifts this year for the 2 grands 5 & 3 yr olds. Here's one. The "thing" on the shoulder is the slide for a headband. Reading pillow, stuffed animal, shirt, purse, hair thing...put a book in each pillow.

It's a glitter vinyl from There's several different vinyls..body & mane on shirt and a different one body on pillow. And the book is another one! It does wash well; I've used it on several shirts for the girls. They SAY you can put it in the dryer, but my daughter & daughter in law hang them to dry.

It's a EB Buddy from They are fairly easy to do. They are 16 inches tall.

I love all the book pillows that suddenly seem to be the thing to make, and yours is beautiful, as are your other projects. And I love the name (that's why my younger daughter is called the same).

They are the "new" thing now. Not hard at all. But the embroidery takes a long time!! Lots of stitches. I think with a multi needle machine it would go much faster, however.

They are faster, but a lot noisier not to mention expensive. I have a 4-needle, but for multi-colour embroideries my Ruby is my go-to machine.

Your projects are so adorable!

Another set - your grands are going to be so happy! Well done!

You have coordinated everything so well. Were you able to make her stuffed unicorn or is this those Buddy pals? I love this idea of the pillow/book to encouraging reading. Great work!

Toogie, it is one of the EB Buddies. They are costly, but so soft & fairly easy to embroider. I only have a single needle machine. But I do see why people charge so much for them!

Thanks for info. I get offers from them every so often when they are on sale. However, I have yet to purchase one.
