It’s a new pattern release! Introducing the Roly Poly Critters – my latest pattern, a set of four cute animals—a panda, sloth, fox, and raccoon. These soft balls are fun to roll, throw, or hug—little fingers will instantly be drawn to touching their faces. A finished critter is about 7” (17.78 cm) across and tall.

I initially designed these thinking of them as a baby toy, but my 3.5 year old son has had a ton of fun throwing them into the basketball hoop. There is something about animal faces that everyone loves! You could easily applique the faces on to a plain square pillow as well.

This pattern was initially released in One Thimble Issue 11*,  an online sewing magazine. Jen, the publisher, does an amazing job – it includes a ton of patterns, articles, and other tutorials. I already shared a bunch of my testers photos, in this sneak peek post, and I’m linking a few of the softies that have popped up during the blog tour, below!

This cutie is almost distracting from the critters – how adorable! This set was from the official One Thimble photo shoot.
