Meet Phil - the friendly caterpillar.
Doesn't he have a sweet smile?
All those joints between his segments allow him to bend nicely for fun play. And they use a nifty (and easy) technique!
His embroidered face is safe for even the youngest babies. Add a bell or a rattle to his face segment when you stuff him for even more baby fun.
Or add a rattle to his tail and turn him into a friendly rattlesnake. :-) You're the maker - you decide!

What You Need
1/4 yard fabric for the body
scraps of fabric for the face and antennae
embroidery thread for the face

a few hours
13 inches long (though you can easily add or subtract segments to make yours longer or shorter)

He's very easy to make, but the nifty joint technique is going to be new to most beginners. Yay! New skills!

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
