Free softie sewing patterns are so much fun – they’re a great way to check out a new pattern designer or blog and inexpensive gift to sew for babies and kids. Last winter, I paired a bunch of free tutorials with my son’s favorite books and it was so much fun, I decided to do it again with fresh softie patterns all released this past year! I like to call this idea “half handmade” – you can sew up a softie and the buy the book and gift them together!
I think free softie sewing patterns are a great way to try out sewing stuffed animals, they’re an affordable way to try out different designers. My kids certainly enjoy all my experiments!
