  • how to use your sewing machine - basics

Pattern Description:

Meet Buddy.

He's huggable and soft and wants to be your best friend.

He's looking for someone who will play with him a lot.

Like - all the time.

Do you know any kids like that?

Buddy sure would like to meet them.

I think you need to make Buddy and welcome him into your home. You can do it!

What You Get

full-sized pattern pieces - no enlarging needed
detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos - you'll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing it right
links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need to complete the project

What You'll Need

1/2 yard fabric (I recommend cuddly fleece)
scraps of fabric for ear linings
scrap of felt for nose
embroidery thread for face
2 9mm safety eyes (optional)
stuffing (I like Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly-fil Supreme Fiberfill)
plastic pellets (I like Fairfield brand Poly Pellets)
doll needle
a few hours


Fitting that gusset under his chin might seem like it's going to be a little tricky, but the pieces are a nice size to work with and if you make it in fleece it'll be easy and forgiving - a great way to try a new skill.


The sitting Buddy is 12 inches tall. Look how cute he is!

Make your own buddy today! The pattern is an instant download. He could be sitting in someone's lap tonight!

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!
