Caterpillar Phil

Skill Builder!


- +

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) construction 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!

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 him


He's 13 inches long (though you can easily add or subtract segments to make yours longer or shorter) and 2 3/4 inches tall - not counting the antennae.


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

Yay! New skills! Especially easy ones! 

If you can use your sewing machine, you can make this caterpillar.

Materials Needed

You'll 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)

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!


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. :-)

Love it!

I love this pattern. It's easy to do with the great instructions by the designer. I used lots of colorful fabric and Phil came out fabulous. I will be purchasing more toy patterns from Shiny Happy World. They make me happy.

This would make a wonderful hungry hungry caterpillar. I made a similar one for my granddaughters. Wish I had seen this first!!
