Effie thought he’d introduce you to his siblings.
So without further ado… meet Ollie, Rosie & Georgie.

(Effie’s the baby in the family, so he usually gets pushed to the back of the line.)

When they’re not eating, serenading Jack with their trumpeting, or romping around, you can find them relaxing at the local window ledge, taking in the afternoon sun.

Don’t they make quite the family?

Now seriously, how cute are these guys?!?! And let me tell ya, they are super simple to make. Once you figure out how to sew one, you’ll be gathering all your fabric scraps to create your own herd!

I picked up my pattern from a local sewing store called CityCraft, but you can buy an Effie & Ollie pattern online here.

These lil’ guys make a wonderful matching addition to a handmade quilt, blanket, or other gift and can be completed in about an hour. They also take very little fabric to create, so are a great way to use up your scraps. I think it might even be fun to mix different fabric scraps on one and see how it turns out. What do ya think?
