I have a fun, easy little bird pattern to share today, as a part of the Sew A Softie group. I love the Sew A Softie community – Trixi from Coloured Buttons organizes it and all over the world, bloggers share free softie patterns and organize softie sewing workshops. Her passion for getting kids started sewing is lovely; you can see my review of her e-book for kids sewing here. In the past I have shared a free sheep softie and a free pocket kitty softie, this Christmas season I have a jingle bird!

If you like sewing felt ornaments, I have a big list of free felt ornament patterns here, too.

She used a really nifty paper format so it can be sold in quilt shops, it looks super polished and is easy to follow. I have a second copy of the pattern I’ll give away to someone, read to the end of the post for details! I don’t know what it is about owls, but they never get old. We love seeing them in the wild when we go hiking and we love them as stuffies that can come inside!

Little Photographer Camera Softie – Updated!

I’ve sewn tons of softies and handmade toys over the past few years, and the one that has been most popular has been the Little Photographer Camera!

There’s a little window in the back to slip real pictures; my kids love shuffling through them or suggesting new ones. Seeing other peoples’ versions pop up in different color combinations over the years has been so much fun and after receiving feedback from a few folks I decided to update the pattern.

Hipster Teddy Bear PDF Sewing Pattern

Hipster Teddy Bear - modern teddy bear sewing PDF pattern from Swoodson Says.

The Hipster Teddy Bear PDF sewing pattern is a modern teddy bear that both girls and boys will love. My daughter wanted a bear to sleep with and I didn’t love any of the patterns on the market, so I made one! Designed for confident beginners, it would be a perfect ‘first softie’ project. Appliqueing the face and turning the thinner limbs right side out can take a bit of patience, but it’s worth it!
