12 Awesome Free Stuffed Toy / Plushie / Softie Tutorials

Stuffed toys, softies, plushies, plush, soft toys, whatever you call them they're fun to sew!

Inspired by last week's Guest Post - a review of Abby Glassenberg's book Stuffed Animals: from concept to construction - today I'm sharing a round-up of links to 12 fantastic free softie patterns.

1. DIY Nessie - We Lived Happily Ever After. Make your own Loch Ness Monster!

2. Mr Ted - Craft Schmaft. A modern take on the classic teddy bear.

3. Animal Bean Bags - Tried & True. Who knew cubes could be so cute?

4. DIY Handmade Walrus - The A & B Stories. I love his tusks!

5. Stuffed Marshmallow - Wild Olive. Super simple and SUPER cute.

6. Playful Stuffed Crocodile - Sew 4 Home. Those teeth! So great.

7. Donkey Softie - Myra Masuda, on the Etsy Blog. Love the ears and the cute eyes!

8. Myrtle the Turtle - The Purl Bee. Make use of some of that pretty fabric in your stash.

9. Superhero Soft Toy - Lisa Tilse at CraftTuts+. Easy to customise to create a personalised gift.

10. Stegosaurus - Nuno Life. My favourite kind of dinosaur.

11. Plush Fox Dolls - A Beautiful Mess. Every sofa needs a fox cushion!

12. Kawaii Yeti Monster - Amanda Tepie at CraftTuts+. Just adorable.

Got the toy-making bug and want to learn how to design and make your own softies? Check out the review of Stuffed Animals by Abby Glassenberg I shared last week. Abby also has lots of fun free sewing tutorials on her blog, While She Naps.

Great post! Love all the plushies and what's even more awesome all of them can be made from felt!

Oh that Nessie soft toy is so cute. I've got a new stash of felt arriving in the post shortly too.

After the traumas of a world book day costume (heavily featuring felt, of course!) a nice soft toy would be just the trick!

Thanks for the round up.

Oh but the tortoises too.... decisions, decisions!
