As humans, we are naturally drawn to something cute and cuddly. We want to love them, protect them, and snuggle up with them. This is why plushies are so popular for kids and even adults too!

14 Best Cute Sewing Patterns To Try Out For Yourself

If you are a sewing enthusiast, there is no need to spend money on a new plushie to give as a gift, or to keep for yourself.

You can make your own instead. There are so many cute sewing patterns to try out if you want to create a plushie.

We have gathered 14 of the cutest sewing patterns for you to try your hand at in this guide!

1. Cute Frog Sewing Pattern

There is something oh so cute about frogs. Maybe it is the big eyes, their round, curved up bodies and smiley faces.

Now, you can make your own huggable frog in no time. With this sewing pattern, you will receive simple instructions, the pattern itself, and an instant download after purchase.

The pattern is easy to follow, but you may struggle with the small size of the plushie, which can make the process a little more fiddly and difficult.

However, you can add your own twist to it by adding wire armature, so that you can pose this frog’s long limbs.

2. Cute Stuffed Bunny Sewing Pattern

If you are looking for the perfect baby shower gift, then we have you covered with this amazing stuffed bunny sewing pattern.

It is easy to follow, and you will create a cute and lovable bunny, and some clothes to go with it.

The bunnies will be 11 inches in size when complete, and you will receive patterns for the bunny, a dress, pants, and a jumpsuit. With 72 photos and 11 pages, this pattern is really in-depth and helpful.

With step by step photos, a tutorial, and the full pattern, you can make this plush that is perfect for a nursery or as an Easter gift.

The pattern is well suited to confident beginners, but it does have a few curves that can take a bit of practice to get right. However, with the instructions and tutorial, you can create this duck for yourself.

The finished product is about 15 inches from head to toe, and 11 inches when sitting down. It also fits clothing patterns from the same seller, so it can be used as a dress up doll too.

Staying with the duck theme, we love this fluffy duck plush. It is actually one of the cutest things we have ever seen.

The sewing pattern is fully comprehensive, with step by step instructions, diagrams perfect for a novice and a more experienced sewist, with full sized pattern sheets.

What we like about this one is that it is not an instant download. This pattern will be mailed to you, so if you want a physical pattern- then try this one out for size.

5. Plush Elephant Memory Sewing Pattern

Elephants are also super cute creatures. With this pattern, you can make an elephant memory bear for a loved one. Memory bears use fabric that have special meanings or that serve as memorials.

Choose a fabric that means something to the person receiving the bear, and create this huggable plush for them.

This sewing pattern comes with step by step photos, tutorials, and more. It is suitable for a confident beginner, but also fun for more intermediate sewists.

When complete, the plushie sits at around 11 inches, or 15 inches from head to toe.

This pattern is a digital download, and you will receive the digital file with the pattern, ready for printing, written instructions, and online tutorials you can use.

What we like about this pattern is that there is an online tutorial for beginners, and a separate one for more experienced sewists, which is quicker and less in-depth than the first.

7. Cute Octopus Sewing Pattern

This sewing pattern creates a very cute octopus plush. You will get a PDF instant download of the plush sewing pattern, with a simple design, and several face options to choose from.

The pattern also comes with animal variations for more fun and projects to work on. For instance, you can also use it to make a bunny, panda, fox, alpaca, and kitty.

With complete instructions from start to finish, along with information about choosing fabrics and the tools you will need, it is a great pattern.

However, it is not recommended for beginners, but the instructions are detailed, so if you are a newbie looking for a challenge, you can give it a good go!

8. Felt Cute Dragon Sewing Pattern

Felt plushies are extra cute in our eyes. There is just something about them. We love this felt baby dragon toy sewing pattern. When complete, it is only 3.5 inches tall, so it is a great gift for children or babies.
