Base Fabric – I used a canvas but a Cotton will work beautifully

Applique fabric – i used Flannel but you can also use Cotton

Heat and Bond

Fabric Measurements

Front fabric – 18″ x 18″

Back pieces Cut 2 – 18″ x 10 1/2″

Cut out your reindeer, Iron the heat and bond onto the back of your applique fabric, use the deer to trace your image onto the back of your fabric and then cut out with sharp scissors

Peel off the back of the heat and bond and place onto your fabric


Iron it to your fabric to  fuse the pieces together, you can leave it this way or you can do a zig zag stitch around your image to secure it more and it also adds visual interest if you can see your stitches

Take the two back pieces and fold down the long edge 1″ to create a hem, you can zip zag over this seam or double fold and do it a straight stitch to hide the raw edges

lay your front fabric right sides up, and the back two pieces ontop with the hem’s over lapping, and then you can place your trim between the layers on the edge, i fold my fur in half to line up all the raw edges

Sew all the way around, its not a fun process if you have a very thick fur lol but its worth it!
