I love giving handmade gifts. Some I make myself, and others I buy from people who have talents far beyond my own. I’ve been buying handmade stuffed animals and dolls for my kids since Bean was a baby. I love the idea that these toys are one of a kind and that no one in the world has one exactly like the ones that my kids have.
Lately I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with handmade stuffies. They are just so cute. Stuffies make great handmade gifts for any occasion– birthday’s, Christmas, Easter, baby showers, etc. Today I thought I’d share with you over 27 of my favorite stuffy patterns! Most of them are free, a few are not but hey– these talented people deserve the support! Enjoy!

The sloth is adorable! I’ve bookmarked this!
A friend of mine just bought two pairs of brown men’s socks and we are going to attempt the sloth project tomorrow! I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂

so crafty. I am sure the fabric has so many choices of fabric for this kind of project.

Love to sew. These are so cute. There are actually a couple of these I would like to try. Need to pull out my boxes of scrap fabric. Thanks for sharing these.

I have been trying to sign up for Sew Magazine to get the free “sleepy kitty” pattern, and I keep getting an error, do you have any suggestions?
First off thank you so much for visiting. I just tried signing up to test it out and the same thing happened to me. I’d suggest emailing one of the editors to get them to help you out. All of their contact info can be found here: https://www.sewmag.co.uk/contact-us
I hope that helps!
