• Kid Craft Ornament to Sew in No Time

    Kid Craft Ornament – Snow Globe A kid craft ornament is the perfect snowy day activity for kids that are home from school during winter break.

The stuffing is enclosed in small “pillows” for easy removal, allowing you to access the tummy and place it flat on the hooped stabilizer. REINDEER HOOPING All Embroider Buddies are basically the same as far as how to remove the stuffing. Unzip the animal along the lower edge and remove the stuffing “pillows.” The reindeer stuffy has two removable “pillows” and one that stays put (in the the…
