Easter Pillow Doll Free Pattern©

"Free Easter Pillow Peep Inspired Doll Pattern©"
By Connie Hughes Designs©
I love this simple pattern...you can do so much with it...
You can make them for each child in any color...
They would be cute on a chair or sofa...
But if your hosting the big Easter Brunch it would be really cute
to sit one of these in each child's chair...or inside an Easter Basket!
Very easy and quick to make...just yarn of any color, buttons for eyes,
poly-fill and some cute ribbon!



Happy Easter Everyone!
