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 Get
Full-sized pattern pieces - no enlarging needed.
Detailed instructions with loads of large, step-by-step photos. You'll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing things right.
Links to videos teaching you every skill you'll need to make him.
What You Need
1/4 yard fabric for the body
scraps of fabric for the face and antennae
embroidery thread for the face
stuffing (I like Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly-fil Supreme Fiberfill)
a few hours
13 inches long (though you can easily add or subtract segments to make yours longer or shorter)
2 3/4 inches tall (not counting the antennae)
See the final photo for a picture of a customer-made Phil with an actual kid for scale. :-)
He's very easy to make, but the nifty joint technique is going to be new to most beginners. Yay! New skills!
As soon as payment is received you'll receive a link to download the pattern. Instant gratification!
