Meet Munch! He's a squishy monster with a fun pocket mouth!

That pocket is a great place to hide gifts and special treasures! And it's surprisingly easy to make. :­-)

Materials Needed

You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

You'll Need. . .

  • 1/3 yd. fleece fabric
  • scraps of satin and patterned fabric for the mouth and the ear linings
  • two 12 mm safety eyes
  • plastic pellets for filling (I like Fairfield Poly Pellets)
  • polyester fiberfill (I love Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly­fil Supreme)

This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

For example, if you're using this pattern to make stuffed animals which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to do all the stuffing, or die cut the fabric pieces for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

Fantastic pattern!

I loved everything about this pattern. Great instructions, easy and so much fun to make! I’ve got 3 more munches ready to make, they’re adorable and addictive 😄

Adorable Munch

Munch is fun to make and looks oh so cute when done! I am advanced beginner level and found this easy to make once I had all the necessary materials. The instructions were overall easy to follow. I had not done a plush before, but have done some quilts and tote bags and was able to make this.

I loved making these monsters! My grandsons are 10 and 12, but I think they're going to love them. Especially with some surprises in the mouth!
