Fleece Peace Sign Tied Pillow Craft Kit
Notwithstanding some of the comments regarding lining up the product front to back, the quality of the tassels, the difficulty in tying them, etc., I ordered these for my daughter's 10th slumber party as a craft for the girls to do -- and it was fabulous. Absolutely not an iota of difficulty. Yes, I agree that additional stuffing is most certainly necessary - but the end result, is positively delicious and the girls loved, loved, loved them! My recommendation: buy a paint pen and write each girl's name beautifully on the back so they don't mix them up. I did that and every girl left with her self-made pillow. :)

It was a little difficult for our group of 7-8 year old girls for my daughter's birthday. Some had difficulty with the tying aspect of the craft. There is not enough "stuffing" for the pillows to make them functional. I bought extra to add to the craft, which really made a difference. They are colorful and soft, which the girls loved. I would still recommend them.

Very cute! These were used to entertain a group of 12 yr old girls at an overnight. They really enjoyed them . The only complaint was each pillow could use more stuffing. I had extra and it worked out but would definitely encourage others to have extra on hand .

Great slumber/birthday party craft
We bought these for my child's 11th birthday/slumber party. Everyone was able to do and enjoy this craft, though I needed to show/instruct a few how to do it on their own. Attendees were typically 9 to 11 years old. Some decided to make it a keepsake by having everyone sign the back of it.
Only thing you might want to add is more polyfil. It could be a little bigger.

great party craft
I have birthday parties at my home and usually do some sort of craft. The girls and some boys loved this. It kept them busy for 1/2 hour and they took it home when they left. Could use more fluff filling tho so I bought more on the other recommendations. None of the peace signs were cut off like the other reviews. Before starting I had the moms help tie up just the corners so they could keep it aligned. It was perfect!

Kids loved it!!
I had read reviews, so I knew it best to buy additional stuffing ($2 craft store). I also safety pinned the corners to prevent slipping while tying. Came out cute, children carried them around the rest of the party!

I bought these for my daughters 10th birthday party. The girls made them before watching a movie. It took them a lot longer than I expected. I also purchased extra filling for the pillows as the filling that is included leaves the pillows flat and not really comfy. We ended up using double what the directions say to use. So do buy more stuffing. The girls LOVED this craft. They were 9-11 years old and needed help getting the pieces to line up, but once the pillows were done they had pillow fights, and slept with them. Great craft for a sleep over!!!
I will be buying these again for sure!!

I didn't have trouble with the peace signs being cut off center as others had mentioned...but the outside cuts were way off between the two pieces! They were still usable, but made it very difficult to tie together when nothing lined up properly. I used these for a 9 yr old's birthday party...I had to help them a lot because they were confused that one side had several more "ties" than the other. Also, make sure to purchase extra stuffing from a craft store! Fleece was decent quality...but thinner than what you would purchase by the yard. In hindsight, I probably would have taken the time to go purchase fleece and try to make these myself.

Great Party Favor Gift
Great little art/craft activity for a girl's B-Day Party, that doubles as a party favor for the guests to take home!

Received my order VERY fast as usual, but was VERY disappointed. A great idea having the pieces pre-cut; tie knots and stuff! However, all of the blue color side of the pillows are pre-cut with 15 snips on each side with the reverse yellow side pre-cut with 12 snips - thus making this kit unusable. I was very disappointed! I went thru 5 of the 6 kits - all the same. Returning kit today.
