Knuckleheads Monster Softie Pattern



- +

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

Clyde (the mopey gray one) is crazy easy to make. If you're looking to make your first softie ever, I'd recommend Clyde. Plus - he really needs a best friend.

Leonard (the purple one) has a very hairy back - and he's proud of it!

Mary Margaret (the red one) has a few self-control issues - but she has a kind heart and she loves to give hugs with those long skinny arms.

With one pattern you can make a whole horde of monsters. After you make the basic Knuckleheads you can play mad scientist and start rearranging the parts. Add Mary Margaret's long arms to Leonard. Replace Clyde's ears with Leonard's horns. Give Clyde's ears to Mary Margaret. 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. :-)

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.

Materials Needed

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

You'll need. . .

  • 3/8 yard main fabric

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 do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)
