I’ve had lots of folks asking me for stuffed animal designer suggestions, so I thought I’d start a post where I can share some of my favorites and keep adding gems as I find them! I also have another post with over 50+ free printable stuffed animal patterns, if you’re on a tight budget, or want to try a designer out before buying a full pattern. Softies make great gifts to sew, and they offer a new challenge if you’re used to sewing clothes or bags normally. If you’re wondering how to sew a stuffed animal – read this post first, full of my best tips for sewing softies!
