Little Driver Wheel – Swoodson Says Pattern Release

Little Driver's Wheel - PDF Sewing Pattern from Swoodson Says. The perfect handmade toy for the little car,tractor, truck loving kid in your life.

My son is 2.5 and all about trucks and tractors – but gets frustrated when bedtime comes and the toys’ sharp edges aren’t fit for cuddling. Enter the Little Driver Wheel, my newest Swoodson Says PDF sewing pattern! A fleece softie that can be used for imaginative play or snuggles. I handed it to him in the car yesterday so he could “drive” as we went down the road and he had so much fun with it. Add a cardboard box with some markers and you have a whole day’s worth of indoor fun!

The pattern features an optional “squeaker” horn in the middle. It requires an intermediate sewing level – you are expected to know how to applique (although I link to one of my tutorials, if you’re not) and be comfortable sewing lots of curves. You have to be patient in pinning and sewing the circles or they will end up skewed!

A finished wheel measures about 12.5″ and is just right for toddler sized hands. They’d make great birthday party favors, especially since they don’t require too much fabric (and fleece is cheap!).
