Crochet Along – Santa Pillow Part 3 – Reindeer

In this video you will learn how to make the Reindeer antlers.I tried several different way of making the antlers.I think the way I have done them is the best. As you can see in the Reindeer photo below I have not sewn any ends in.I may need them to sew the parts to the front of the pillow, so I have left them.When he is put together I think he’s going to be super cute!!!
