Milton Monkey Softie Pattern



- +

Meet Milton! He's cute and cuddly with long, flexible arms and legs that are easy to make and lots of fun to play with. :-) Make your own huggable monkey!

This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly and ready to print onto letter-size paper. No shipping costs and no waiting! If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.

Pattern Details

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 make your own squishy monkey – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!


He's about 13 inches tall when sitting - not counting his long legs. His arms and legs are about 7 inches long. That's long enough to hug a friend. :-)



There's nothing tricky on this one - just cuddly cuteness. :-) If you can use your sewing machine, you can make him.

If your sewing machine doesn't have a free arm, you may need to sew the head to the body (the neck seam) by hand.

Materials Needed

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

You'll Need. . .

  • 1/2 yd. brown fleece fabric (I love using Cuddle Fleece)
  • scraps of rust Cuddle Fleece for the muzzle and tummy
  • tiny scraps of copper felt for the eyes
  • two 9 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 machine embroider the faces, 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. :-)

Milton Melts My Heart ❤️

This little monkey was so fun to make! He’s my third creation from this site. Love how easy the directions are to follow. It’s a little bit challenging piecing him together but there is a video to help you every step of the way. I’m super happy with him!

cool monkey

i ordered both the monkey and the elephant. i have finally had time to make the elephant and he was easy, i just keep forgetting to put in the ears !
can not find the fleece in our one and only fabric store so Milton may have to wait a while.
