Say hello to Bobbin the Reindeer!


I’m so excited to finally be introducing you to my adorable Reindeer fawn Bobbin. A  hand embroidered and sewn stuffed felt animal. 


There is something truly loveable about them; a little bit cheeky and ever so cute. I’ve found it hard to come up with a name so they’ve spent quite a long time called Bob… But I’ve finally decided on Bobbin, which reminds me of both Dobbin (a traditional English name for a horse) and a dressmaking tool we couldn’t live without! So Bobbin it is!


Bobbin stands 14 cm high and would look wonderful on your festive table or mantle piece or even taking pride of place at the top of your Christmas tree. ideal for adventurous beginners and experienced stitchers alike. The instruction booklet has 4 pages of step by step instructions and I like to think they are very detailed and easy to follow. I also hold live video tutorials on my Instagram every Friday evening. 



This download includes all the instructions you need to create your reindeer 

There are:

Templates for Bobbin

.SGV templates for Cricut users.

an embroidery stitch guide

Step by step photography and written instructions

and a copy of SEWYEAH SEWS, my new 20 page introduction to felt embroidery ebook. 


The templates come set up for  both UK A4 and US Letter printers and there is also a SGV file included for cutting machines. 


For extra help don’t forget I will be on instagram LIVE on Friday the 14th and 21st of October at 8pm (BST) showing you the different stages of the project and answering any questions. I will also be saving these lives to my instagram so you can refer to them at any time. 




This instructional package has been created as a companion to the online video tutorials I provide in my Friday evening Instagram Live Make-A-Longs. Tune into my Instagram channel @sewyeah at 8pm on Fridays for a 90 minute tutorial focussing on different sections of the project. If you can't join in live, don't worry as the videos will be saved to my IGTV so you can watch at your leisure.
