I drew a pattern for a little deer awhile ago, and have managed to make them just in time for Christmas!I think they've turned out quite cute, really. They're easy enough to make, each deer took me about 2 hours to finish (in between watching TV).Here's the pattern, I hope it's easy enough to understand.I chose not to add antlers as I wanted Bambi type deer, but they're included in the pattern.
You can embellish them however you want. I've used buttons for eyes, thread for the nose and a ribbon with a bow around the neck. Hang them on your tree as ornaments! Their little legs are pose-able too.If you get stuck with the pattern, let me know in the comments with a way to contact you and I'll try and help.
