Buddy - a puppy softie pattern

Skill Builder!


- +
What you get+-

Meet Buddy.

He's huggable and soft and wants to be your best friend.

He's looking for someone who will play with him a lot. Like - all the time. Do you know any kids like that? Buddy sure would like to meet them.

I think you need to make Buddy and welcome him into your home. You can do it!

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.) 
  • 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 huggable puppy – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole. You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!


The sitting Buddy is 12 inches tall.


This one's a skill builder because there's a gusset under his chin and that's going to be a new skill for most beginners. There's a video (of course) showing you how to do it. I think you'll be surprised by how easy it is - especially if you're using fleece fabric! 

What You Need+-

You'll Need. . .

  • 1/2 yard fabric (I recommend cuddly fleece)
  • scraps of fabric for ear linings
  • scrap of felt for nose
  • embroidery thread for face
  • 2 9mm safety eyes (optional)
  • stuffing (I like Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly-fil Supreme Fiberfill)
  • plastic pellets (I like Fairfield brand Poly Pellets)
  • doll needle

An easy puppy

Buddy’s pattern makes a very cute puppy. The instructions are easy to follow and I will be making more puppies for family and friends.
