These are Love Bugs - they are stuffed friends – pillows – given to children. You can include a note tucked inside with words of encouragement and support.
5 Fat Quarters are needed to make one pillow!
The pattern is a perfect beginner sewing project that began as a “Keep One, Donate One” project with a Girl Scout troop.
What is the Love Bug program - the Sew A Little Love Bug?
Moda Fabrics has partnered with the Creativity Shell to make and donate Love Bugs through the Sew a Little Love Bug campaign. They share a commitment to giving back to our communities, eliminating inequality, and helping people in need. Especially children. This partnership also shares a mutual calling to support youth mental health awareness and arts education. That is how the Sew A Little Love Bug campaign started.
Love Bugs finish at approximately 14" around.
