It’s here: my new Rhinoceros Stuffed Animal Sewing Pattern. Cuter-than-cute!! I feel I just obtained a Phd in pattern-design while making this rhino. Now armed with all this pattern making knowledge, the other animals should be really easy to design for you.

Filling for your Toy Animal Sewing Pattern

You all know I am a great fan of recycling, reusing, upcycling and not creating any waste or extra plastics on the planet. So, a couple of things on that for these toy animal sewing patterns:

  • Toys can often be made from remnants. I did for the pink rhino. So, be sure to go through your fabric stash before buying new fabric, yarn, embroidery floss. You probably have all you need already at home.
  • The ‘serious’ stuffed toy makers use ‘proper’ filling for the stuffing. I personally stuffed mine with organic ‘waste’ fleece that I took off the fences where sheep graze, on my walks through the fields. Wool is excellent stuff for stuffing into little spaces and makes for a natural, very soft toy.
  • I realise that not everyone lives near sheep like I do. So, the next best thing for you is to consider buying organic raw fleece (#ad) which is a cheaper than poly fill and way better for the environment. And wool lasts for centuries! Thus, so will your creations!

At the time of this writing, it’s $9.95 for a whole pound!
