Baby Buddies Softies & Backpack
These cuddly stuffed buddies are easy to sew and can be stitched up in lots of different fabrics: cottons, fleece, Woolfelt and more! Fat-eighth friendly, they can be made up in traditional colors or you can mix up bright colors for a fun scrappy look. Simple applique highlights their sweet faces, and eyes can be appliqued or buttons may be used. They also make a great travel pillow! The child-sized backpack is just right for a toddler, and the adjustable straps allow for growth for several years. The whimsical zipper mouth opens to allow toys, snacks and such to be carried to a friend's house or to grandma's for a visit. The backpack is also easy to sew and can be made up like any of the characters shown. Use a sturdier fabric such as duckcloth or lightweight canvas for best results. Lots of other critter design ideas are included in the pattern: cat, bunny, raccoon etc.
