Snail soft toy digital sewing pattern by Willowynn
A simple PDF sewing pattern / tutorial for making a snail soft sculpture - designed by Margeaux Davis of Willowynn. Download and print at home.
With its distinctive spiral shell and gentle, shy nature, the snail makes a lovely soft toy or fabric sculpture, and an ideal gift for the nature-loving little one (or adult) in your life.
Full of simple, clear directions and instructional photos, this sewing project is intended for the advanced beginner sewer wanting to tackle a slightly more complicated soft sculpture project that includes gussets, wire and hand-stitching. Some hand and machine sewing experience is recommended.
Full size pattern pieces / templates (to make a snail around 21cm long).
Detailed step-by-step instructions with 26 colour photographs.
The pdf file consists of 12 pages (including 2 template sheets) and is 1.9 MB in size.
Two 20 x 30 cm pieces of light to medium-weight fabric. Flannelette, linen or cotton are ideal. (I used thrifted, second-hand bed linen and clothing to make the snails pictured).
Avoid bulky fabric or fabric with stretch.
The template provided (printed at 100% on A4 / letter sized paper) should make a finished snail measuring approximately 21cm long*. The photos provided are an example of this size.
*This is an approximate size. The size of your finished snail will vary depending on fabric and amount of stuffing you use, etc. For a larger or smaller toy, simply reduce or enlarge your template pieces, when printing (or with a photocopier).
