I love Free Patterns or PDFs, here is a list of the top 10 I have found today. This is only my opinion of good PDFs and online instructions that are easy to follow. I will be making these myself over the next month or so. I also add different links for the PDF themselves and the directions, so you don’t have search the blog for them (one of my least favorite thing to do). I also added a photo so you don’t have to open the links to see the animal.
#1. Penguin, this is for my middle autistic son who loves Penguins to death. The PDF is from Purl Soho and the instructions on their Website at The Purl Bee Penguin. My guys favorite color is orange so I am thinking it with be orange and black and white. I recently made these 2 little guys for my son, here their photo. I will say they don’t stand on their own but super cute and not to hard to make.
#2. Stuffed Fleece Fox, this pattern is super cute!! Here is the PDF link Fox Pattern by Stitched by Crystal. I have had this PDF saved for long time and can’t wait to finally make one for my daughter, a pink one.
#3. Spring Chicken, I have make 2 of these already. I love that is can be made with scraps (my 2nd chicken was made for hot pink fur, see photo) and can have any color combos. The PDF is here Spring Chicken this is by Sew Mama Sew.
#5. A Little Seahorse Rattle, this is so cute (would use a bell and not a rattle) but there was no pattern I could find but it is just a drawing anyone could make or save the top photo and print that or tracing the photo for the computer itself (that’s what I did). The website is from Hobbycraft. I made this and here is the photo.
#6. Tilda Reindeer from Craft Beautiful, this reindeer is amazing looking but the directions are lacking a bit. I would love to tried it anyways, you can download the template here, make sure to scroll down to find the reindeer pieces.
#7. Owl Plushies, This is another great scrap buster because its small and can use any color combo. The pattern pieces are here and the website with instructions is Adventures in Making. I think I would change the eyes a bit because they look a little odd with the black outline.
#8. Sorry I had to remove the photo for now because of copyright issues, I am working on resolving this as soon as possible. Too Flashy Fox from Homespun Magazine, I found this super cute fox, the pattern is free you might have to sign in to get but it is free. This is what I did, I signed up then closed the page and reopened it to the pattern right away. Here is the link I used Too Flashy Fox, hopefully it works for you. If Not I have it pinned on pinterest. Also note that there are no written direction I could find, just the pattern pieces. For those of you who need instructions (honestly, I tried to make this with only the pieces and couldn’t) I have found them on Esty at Angel Lea Designs for about $9, here is the link (affiliate link).
#9. Cozy Kitty Heat Packs, I picked this one because my kids love heats packs. I thought this would a great idea, they would be cute just stuffed too. The pattern is here and the website is Made by Marzipan.
#10. Whale Pattern, this is another cute and easy pattern. The pattern is here and the instructions are at Birth Fabric. I love it as a photo prop for an ocean themed pictures, make a pink one for a girl.
