Eggheads - Monster softie pattern



- +

Meet the Eggheads! This pattern is for an easy-to-make softie with three variations.

Hugh (the shaggy gray one) is ever-so-slightly insane.

Eugene (the furry blue one) is special. His entire belly is one big pocket - perfect for gobbling up small toys and hiding secret treasures. You won't believe how easy it is to make that pocket!

Cedric (the green one) is a gentle soul who wouldn't hurt a flea. Not that he has fleas, of course. :-) He's made of soft polar fleece - easy to find, delightful to work with, and lovely to cuddle. Cedric is especially proud of his back ridges, so he asked me to drop in another photo showing them too. Cedric thinks they make him look kind of tough. :-)

With one pattern you can make a whole horde of monsters. After you make the basic guys you can play mad scientist and start rearranging the parts. Add Cedric's back ridges to Hugh. Add Hugh's horns to Eugene. Add Eugene's pocket belly to Cedric. I'm sure there's a limit to the number of combinations possible, but I don't remember how to do that kind of math. :-)

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

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. :-)

Super fun!

I bought this pattern for my 9-year-old grandson to make. With my help with the ironing and pinning, he made it in one evening. I thought he would give it to his little sister, but he liked it so much he kept it for himself! A fun pattern that’s easy to make!
