  • sew curves

Pattern Description:

Meet the Eggheads! This pattern is for an easy-to-make softie with three variations.

Hugh (the shaggy gray one) is ever-so-slightly insane.

Eugene (the furry blue one) is special. His entire belly is one big pocket - perfect for gobbling up small toys and hiding secret treasures. You won't believe how easy it is to make that pocket!

Cedric (the green one) is a gentle soul who wouldn't hurt a flea. Not that he has fleas, of course. :-) He's made of soft polar fleece - easy to find, delightful to work with, and lovely to cuddle. Cedric is especially proud of his back ridges, so he asked me to show you a photo showing them too.

The finished softies are 9 1/2 inches tall - a great size for hugging. :-)

With one pattern you can make a whole horde of monsters. After you make the basic guys you can play mad scientist and start rearranging the parts. Add Cedric's back ridges to Hugh. Add Hugh's horns to Eugene. Add Eugene's pocket belly to Cedric. I'm sure there's a limit to the number of combinations possible, but I don't remember how to do that kind of math. :-)

This is a very easy pattern - appropriate for beginners. Can you control the speed of your machine? Are you comfortable sewing curves? Then you can sew this pattern.

You get full-sized pattern pieces - no enlarging needed.

The 19-page pattern is loaded with full-color step-by-step photos and very clear instructions PLUS links to videos teaching you all the techniques you need to know to complete the project. You can totally make this!

The pattern is an instant download. Get it now and you can have a finished monster by the end of the day. :-)

  • 9 1/2 inches tall - perfect for hugging
