Item details

A charming button jointed deer for display or gentle play! This deer can be made for any season or occasion, not just Christmas. Make in natural colors, bright colors, or fun patterns. (Also can be turned into a unicorn easily as shown in other examples, just add a horn instead, and mane/tail). Up to you!

I designed this plush to be made with interfaced quilting weight cotton, and it is intended for display or gentle play. Button jointing is too delicate for rough play or cuddling. The plush is about 10" tall sitting flat (not including antlers). He is a great size to fit in your hands like a doll. This pattern is recommended for at least intermediate sewers in terms of control and attention to detail, however I explain many techniques in detail in case you are not familiar with them.

- Includes full size pattern pieces that print out on 8.5 x 11" standard paper
- Detailed 9 page sewing instructions
- Lots of color photos AND diagrams
- 2 PDF files (one for instructions and one for pattern)
- Also includes optional thinner antlers (like I usually make) if you want a challenge


LISTING IS FOR PATTERN ONLY. Not a finished plush.

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I use Paypal or direct checkout.

Returns & exchanges

I make all items with my own high quality standards. With intended use/handling they should be lovable for many years to come! But if you feel there was some fault with my work I will gladly do anything I can to make it right. If you must return something, you can do so within a week of receiving it (item must be in the same condition it arrived) I can refund the original cost but not the shipping costs.

Additional policies

"Will you remake ____ ?" I am sorry I do not EXACTLY remake my creatures on request. I may make similar creatures in the future, or even ones with same fabric combos if they were very popular (in the case of things like Chibi quads, narwhals, or Quizzy dragons) but part of what makes my creatures special is they are designed individually, or use fabric that makes it near impossible to recreate anyway (ones made with my handmade wool felt, or dyed felted sweaters).

At this time I also am closed to new commissions until I can catch up with them - it lends itself to my store too often being empty as I work too much on commissions. I will reopen them in the future! :)
