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 Size 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. :-) Difficulty He's very easy to make, but the nifty joint technique is going to be new to most beginners.
