I made this pattern up when I was still pregnant with Little Lady. I’ve finally gotten around to making this cute guy for her first birthday. Perfect timing, since I wanted to give her something that she will cherish.
I love how this came out. It is 27″ from toe to ear tip. It’s almost as tall as Little Lady, and the perfect size for cuddling. Having kept the raw edges on the face and chest piece gives it that little touch of shabby chicness- the ultimate cuteness. They should fray with age.
I’m no professional pattern maker. Hopefully I have made this is easy enough to follow but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Let’s get started, shall we?
First print out the PDF(at the bottom of the post) and cut out all the pattern pieces. I used an orange cotton for the body and undyed muslin for the white parts.
It should look something like this:
Stuff with fill. (I used this fill which I love.) There should be two legs, two arms, and a tail.
To close off, place the open ends of the legs in between the seams and hand stitch it closed turning the raw edge of the opening in as you go. I used a ladder stitch to keep the seam hidden.
I have put 1″ measurements on some of the pattern pieces so you can make sure it is to scale when printed out. However you can scale this with a copier to make a smaller/larger stuffed buddy.
