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, which is a cheaper than poly fill and way better for the environment. And wool lasts for centuries! Thus, so will your creations!

So, get this:

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

  • Ah their all so cute! But the rhino and giraffe are still my favorite. You do beautiful work.

  • These are all sooooo cute, but I especially like the giraffe!! I'm pinning it, and thanks for sharing at Submarine Sunday!!

  • Oh my, these are adorable! Love it. Thank you for gathering and sharing on Snickerdoodle. Pinned and hope to see you again soon!

  • These are so CUTE!! I might attempt one (as soon as my sewing machine is fixed) because I am not the best sewer. I'm between a beginner and intermediate. I would love if you shared this at Totally Terrific Tuesday that goes live tonight at 9pm CST. I hope to see you there and see what else you got!


  • I registered last night, but have never received a confirmation email. Consequently, it won't let me sign in. Do I need to do something else?? Thanks in advance.

    • Aha. Yes, the issue Shirley, is that you are using a YAHOO email address. Yahoo is notorious for 'eating up' autoresponder emails. They think to do you a service.... If you think Yahoo is bad, AOL and Hotmail are even worse!

      So, sign up with a regular email address and you should be fine.

    • Hi Donna. No, not without establishing a licensing agreement. The copyright of the design extends to the products made with the pattern. You can contact me privately to discuss licensing, if interested.
