There are several ways to use these patterns:
Down load the graphic (all are in gif), use your graphic program to size and alter as you wish. Print and cut out pieces
Print 2 copies of the page, cut out pieces.
For pre-school children I suggest sewn on felt eyes and
nose. For older children store bought eyes and pom-poms may be used.
Budget tip - Go to your local second hand store. Many times an old shirt or dress can be bought for almost nothing. You may also wish to ask about the "rag pile", these are articles of clothing that are damaged, or have a stain. By using old damaged clothing you are helping the world by recycling, also a great way to get matching buttons for the eyes.
