Sew a Stuffed Sheep Softie – Free Pattern!

Sew a free sheep softie sewing pattern! This simple softie is easy to sew by hand or machine, and the little legs are perfect for tiny hands to hang on to.

Let’s sew a sheep stuffed animal! This free sheep softie pattern is so much fun; fast and easy to sew. The simple shapes would make it a great sewing project for kids and the size makes it perfect for hugging. The floppy limbs are easy to hold on to, so I bet babies would like playing with it too! A finished sheep measures 9.5″ high and 8.5″ wide and takes maybe a night to make.

I’m sharing this pattern for free in honor of Sew A Softie Day! Trixi, from Coloured Buttons, invited me to join in; I reviewed her e-book about sewing with kids a while back. Sew A Softie Day is officially on the 17th but a bunch of different makers are sharing patterns leading up to that – go see a list at Coloured Buttons and get sewing!

DIY Christmas Stocking Dog Toy


A DIY Christmas Stocking Dog Toy - it has three treat hidey-holes to keep your dog sniffing around for treats and out of the presents! A sponsored post on Swoodsonsays.com - #ad #clausandpaws #collectivebias

My husband and I adopted our dog, Yoshi, the very first day we moved into an apartment out of college. We had been volunteering at the shelter for months, looking at the new adoptables daily, and Yoshi stole our hearts! He had been neglected and abused, and took a long time to warm up to us. It was over a year before he first barked! He slept on our bed, we fed him his (wet, fancy, all natural) dog food by hand when he was being picky, and he had several Halloween costumes. We joked that he was as needy as a child and treated him like one! Until… we actually had a child.

My son LOVES trucks. He loves to wear trucks, play with trucks, has dreams about trucks, and can spot a truck from miles away when we are out and about.
