Circus Cookie Pillows

Didn't you love eating frosted circus animal cookies as a kid?
That pink and white frosting with sprinkles was a treat.
One of my college age daughters was home a few months ago 
and made up these super fun circus cookie pillows.
Her inspiration was found on Pinterest {here}
She drew out her own patterns based on the elephant, camel and rhino
and added in the lion and giraffe.
You'll need:
white and pink cotton fabric
thread, needle,sewing machine
super mini pom poms
hot glue gun
pillow stuffing

Print off and cut out your favorite animal from our
Circus Cookie Pillow Patterns
Each animal pattern is two prints that you'll need to cut out and tape together
by over lapping the image.

Next, pin your pattern on the fabric and cut two.

With your machine, sew around and leave an opening for the stuffing.
Turn inside out, stuff, and hand sew closed.

Hot glue the mini pom poms all over the pillow front.

These pillows are the cutest!
She made a whole circus!

She kept some for her apartment and gave one to each of us at home.
I think my favorite is the rhino.
Have some fun decorating with these "cookies"!
