This listing is for a .pdf instant download of a plush sewing pattern, made to look like a tiny little robot. It features a big head, little body, and thin arms and legs. It has legs that are free to move, but can be positioned to sit on its own as well (if poly pellets are put in the body). The pattern comes with options to make either a steampunk-themed robot with a top hat and gear motifs, or a classic robot with star or pixel heart motifs. It also has options for an antenna and robot 'ears'.
