Featured in One Thimble e-magazine Issue 4! This pattern is suitable for a beginner sewer. The pattern and instructions will take you through step by step how to sew these 4 softie designs. It includes full sized templates (that can be printed on A4 or Letter sized paper) for the pattern pieces. You will need to download and print out the pattern and cut out the templates.

This project has been designed so you can make it with your child or they can make it themselves. This is an easy softie project they can make using fleece and cotton materials. There are four options to make four different characters - a Cat, Dog, Monster or Bird - or they can mix and match to make a character all of their own!

I have included slightly larger seam allowances, and basic shapes - to make it easier for kids to sew. The arms & legs are sewn into the seams and the facial features are sewn on by machine first before you sew the toy together, so there's not too much hand sewing. There are no tricky or narrow bits so it's easy to turn out all the pieces and sew around.

I like fleece material as the main body fabric as it doesn’t fray and makes a nice soft huggable toy. It’s also very forgiving so their seams don’t have to be perfect and it still looks great!

* 40cm (approx. 16”) fleece fabric for main body, arms, legs & tail (I recommend polar fleece or micro-polar fleece – go for thinner fleece rather than thicker fleece as it will be easier to sew)
* 30cm (12”) square scrap of quilting cotton fabric for tummy & ears
* IF making the BIRD you will need approx. another 30cm square piece of quilting cotton for the feet.
* Approx. 25cm (10”) square piece of fusible webbing – Vliesofix (for applique)
* Approx. 25cm (10”) square piece of iron on pellon 630 ONLY if making the BIRD.
* White and black sewing machine thread (I recommend 100% polyester thread) and thread in a colour to match your tummy patch fabric and red if making the dog for the tongue
* Black embroidery thread
* Black and white felt (for eyes and nose) and red felt (for the tongue if making the dog)
* Embroidery hand sewing needle (or needle with a large eye)
* Washable fabric marker and dressmakers chalk (for drawing on the mouth)
* Stretch sewing machine needle for your machine (for easier sewing with the fleece fabric)
* Polyester toyfill (stuffing)
* General Sewing supplies
