Fleece Snowman Tied Pillow Craft Kit
Excellent teacher gift!
I got these for my child, 8, to make gifts for her teachers. She has trouble with motor planning and fine motor stuff, so I also thought they would be an excellent exercise for her. She did great with them! She loved making them, and by the end she was a regular pro. They looked lovely in the end, and the teachers seemed impressed at the effort and work she put into them.
They were purple, and a lovely shade at that. We had no problems with snowmen being centered. They all looked good to me. We did have to recut some of the fringe, since it seems the cutter may have missed a few pieces or cut them too short, but that was a trivial correction. Very cute and good value!

NOT as pictured
I found these pillows to be average in quality...but they were LIGHT BLUE not purple. They are really cute so I am keeping them, just a warning they may not be the right color for everyone!!!

Not Worth It
I bought this product to do with my Girl Scout troop and donate to a local children's hospital. Well I guess you get what you pay for. The fringe ties on all the kits were not cut all the way through and had to be cut. The girls were very frustrated. And on one or two sides of the pillow kit the ties were shorter and didn't stretch so the girls had a very difficult time tying them. We also had one kit that the snowman print was dirty. I found this to be unacceptable considering we planned on donating the pillows to a local children's hospital.

These were a little challenging for the 8 yr old party. I would recommend them for 10 yr olds. The girls got frustrated and then bored with them.
Some of the ties were not cut all the way and some where shorter on some sides than others.
The snowmen where not centered.
On a more positive note, the Mom's help finish the pilows and the girls enjoyed a good pillow fight!

Great project for kids
I have 2 kids ages 7 and 2. They loved helping with these. The oldest and I did the tieing and the little one fluffed the stuffing and shoved it in. Great fun for them. They needed some touch up cutting, but that was easy. The quality was not that great as the fleece was kind of thin, but at less than $5 each that was to be expected.

Bought these for my kids to put together as gifts. The snowmen were WAY off center and the ties on the sides that aren't stretchy (top and bottom) are too short for the kids to tie. The snow-flake ones are a little better. Nothing to center and the fringe is a little longer for kids to tie. I went with these because they were on sale.

Love the color
I really like this pillow kit and I know my daughter will also. I have come up with to tie & sew the pillow squares together & use one big piece of purple fleece for the back that I already have and make it just about big enough for a queen size bed. At the price I paid on sale after X MAS I ordered 2 kits and now wish I had 2 more kits at that price. I did very well with after X mas sales getting items and now wishing I had order more of the mitten , pengin, and snowman pillow sets along with the snow flake blanket set. I will have great gifts next
X- MAS and fun crafts to do over the summer.
I gave it 3 stares: Quality because I do need to re cut some parts and it is thin so may not be good for heave use. OVER ALL VERY CUTE & GREAT COLORS.

Not exactly what I hoped for
These are blue not purple as others have stated. Still cute though. 5 out of 6 were good enough that kids didn't notice the slight inperfections but one was really off centered. You will have to buy more stuffing since this only comes with half the amount that you will need. Kids loved making them and were very proud. As a mom I loved the joy that come from these kits just wished they would have been what I expected.
