These cute little guys at around 5.5cm high are the perfect size to make into brooches, bag tags, magnets or anything else your heart desires.
Note - this is a free pattern. You are free to make as many as you like, as they would make great items for Christmas, fetes, etc. I only ask that if you share this pattern online that you please link back to Sugarbird - thank you :)
