Make your Christmas glow with 21 Reindeer sewing patterns

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is absolutely my favourite Christmas song. I can relate to being a little different and people not really understanding me. I didn't have quite as dramatic a moment of finding my place in the world, but I'm so much happier being a part of the sewing community and finding a place to be myself.

So as I look around at my Christmas decorations, I realise I'm not doing enough to celebrate this beautiful icon of Christmas. It's time for me to sew a reindeer, with a red nose of course.

Now I just have to decide if I should sew a reindeer quilt block, or a reindeer softie (so many to choose from), or maybe I should get cross-stitching. How do you decide which Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer pattern to sew?

Here are the cutest Christmas reindeer sewing patterns I could find. Maybe I need to sew them all (if only I had that much time!)

Why don't I have a DIY Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer decoration? He's my favourite Christmas character! Time to try some of these reindeer sewing patterns. But should I sew a quilt block, cross-stitch or sew a softie or plush toy?
