MIMITO SOFT TOY
4 Easy to Make, Soft Toys
This pattern and tutorial allow you to create a very quick and easy soft toy in 4 different version including a pig, a koala, a bear and a rabbit.
Finished measurement of the toy is roughly 20/24cms tall depending on the ears.
The MIMITO SOFT TOY pattern is perfect to use up small pieces of fabric scraps. With its four different designs, this pattern is an essential piece that you can make over and over again. The tutorial below will show you how to make a seamless soft toy in four different ways by simply switching up the ears and nose pattern pieces.
From lightweight to heavy-weight linen, hemp, flannelette, corduroy, velvet, denim, any soft, natural woven and non stretch fabrics with a good drape. Avoid fabrics that are too thick and too stiff for easy manipulation and avoid fabrics that are too thin and see-through for a nicer finish.
If your fabric is lightweight and thin, I recommend using interfacing. This pattern is perfect to use a contrasting fabric for the ears and nose.
If you are not sure which fabric to use, look up the hashtag #softtoymimito on Instagram for inspiration.
This project is great to use any small remnant pieces of fabrics you may have in your stash.
Please note: Make sure to cut the fabric on the grainline so that the toy stay nicely in shape.
- Matching threads
- Stuffing (polyester stuffing, cotton balls, fabric scraps...)
- Small 7cm embroidery hoops (if you have but not essential)
PDF SEWING PATTERN
This pattern contains two files. A Print At Home file and a Copy Shop file.
The Copy Shop file can be printed at any printing store onto a large piece of paper. It needs to be printed true to size at scale 100%. This specific file fit onto an A3 paper or US equivalent. Remember to measure the check square at the store before you go home to make sure your pattern has been printed correctly.
The Print At Home file can be printed at home with any standard printer at scale 100%. It contains 3 pages that do not need assembling. This file suits both A4 and US Letter printers.
Please note: Feel free to change the scale of the pattern when printing if you want to make a bigger or smaller toy.
In this tutorial, we are using a 0.7 cm or 1/4 inch seam allowance and is already included on all pattern pieces.
