Found this Pillow Pal pattern on Etsy (Nanoo Designs). The finished pillow measures about 10-1/2"x13-1/2" not including head and appendages. I embroidered those sweet faces using two strands of black embroidery thread. The hair and rosy cheeks were ironed into place using Lite Steam-A-Seam II. I blanket-stitched around the edges of the hair and cheek circles to finish the raw edges. It would not be difficult to create your own pattern pieces for a project like this. I would note that the heads on the two Pillow Pals that I made, flop at the neck; however, they are cuddly soft, travel pillows which I hope will make two little girlies happy.
