Question Asked:

I was helping my Auntie clean her bedroom at the weekend and she gave me a huge bag full of soft toy sewing patterns, and some leftover soft toy faux fur fabric. I have so many good memories of my Auntie making these soft toys for me as a child, I still have them all, and I can still remember all of the names that I gave them. I remember once she was teaching me how to make a little bunny and a little mouse. As an adult, I have not tried to make any soft toys, only cushions. However, I am excited to have a go, my Auntie even has a couple that she has already cut out, which I think will make it a little bit easier for me on my first go.

Does anyone know of the best places to get more of these type of sewing patterns please? And a good place to get faux fur also please? And does anyone make soft toys using any alternative fabrics to faux fur? Just looking for some inspiration and ideas. I have so many different patterns here to make all sorts of different toy animals. Some of them might be a bit easier to make than others, but I would like to try and make them all.

My Auntie also gave me her old sewing machine, so I plan to have a go at sewing them using the sewing machine, and finishing them off by hand. I think that these will be lovely gifts for my friends young children for Birthdays and Christmases. The rabbit sewing patterns would also make perfect Easter gifts along with a chocolate egg. I just think that it would be lovely if I could get some use out of these lovely sewing patterns.

If anyone has made any soft toys, I would really love to see your work.

Thank you so much for your time.

Annie

These are so cute. I would have a look on Facebook Marketplace and Ebay to see if anyone is selling some cheap used soft toy sewing patterns.

Love these cuddly toy sewing patterns. I have the corgi dog sewing pattern. I got it from Facebook Marketplace. I just need to have a go at making it now. I noticed that there are more sewing patterns on there, I just got this one because it is my first attempt, and my friend loved the Queen, so I am making her a corgi soft toy for Christmas.
