Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cut and sew two pieces right sides together.
  • Sew a straight stitch on your sewing machine.
  • Sew a dart.
  • Ladder stitch.

Pattern Description:

Hiss! These snakes are easy to sew and so much fun to play with. With this PDF sewing pattern you'll get three choices of snakes to make: a basic snake, a curvy snake, and a coiled snake. All of the snakes have open mouths with long, forked tongues and big silly eyes. Snakes make great easy-to-sew gifts for babies and kids of all ages.

Add a squeaker
or a rattle
and make your snakes even more fun!

Like all of my patterns, this sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, clear written instructions, and templates. You'll be able to make all three of these snakes with ease!

This sewing pattern is best suited for advanced beginners to intermediate sewers. I take you through the assembly process every step of the way so if you've made a softie or two before, you're ready for this pattern! I recommend using fleece for this project because it is soft, a bit stretchy, vibrantly colored, and inexpensive. Other fabrics may be substituted, but fleece is recommended.
