Free Pattern Friday! Bat Plush

Since it’s still September it’s not quite Halloween season, but I couldn’t help myself! I felt the urge to make a little bat plush and wanted to share the pattern with you 😀
It’s a pretty basic shape with a big head, tiny body, and oversized wings and ears. It’s wonderfully floppy and expressive and very fun to hug. It features several face applique options including lashed eyes, heart shaped nose, fangs, and blush marks. You can mix and match to make your favorite. The wings also have extra top-stitching for some special detail.

It only has four pattern pieces, but placing everything just right is crucial. Not only to be sure the wings and ears are symmetrical, but to be certain the neck is sewn straight as well. If you have no problem taking it carefully during those parts you should be good! I gave it a 3/10 stars in difficulty with all that in mind. I hope you’ll try making one in time for Halloween!

  1. It’s so cute! Thank you so much! :3

  2. Hi,

    I still haven’t received my free pattern from September for signing up for the blog. I’m was looking forward to the Unicorn. I do adore the bat. I just needed another excuse to buy more plush fabric. I found about your website from my Crafty blog when the download link didn’t work so I tried to track the pattern down directly. I’m so glad I did. I wanted that squid pencil pouch pretty bad. My daughter has online friends from her gaming communities, who will adore the squid pencil pouches. I’ve been looking for gifts that would fit into small mailing pouches ( and won’t get broken) to act as thank you gifts and these would be perfect. I wish I’d signed up in July as she would love the the Kitsune Fox (I’m planning to buy and make both of them for her for Christmas). She’s a series anime fan. I need to make all the Mario stuffies.

    Keeping up the good work, I love your designs

    • Hello!
      Thanks so much for signing up for updates! So sorry you didn’t get your pattern yet :/ Sometimes WordPress fails to get me everyone’s email address. But I sent out the pattern earlier, so hopefully you got it.
      And thank you for all the kind words about my work! I’m so glad they work out nicely as gifts for your daughter and her friends ♥

  3. Thank you! This is adorable. I have a roommate who loves bats so I will have to make her one.

  4. Thank you again for free pattern.
    You know what I like the most about your pattern is face applique.

  5. Thank you so very much for this free little Batty pattern! The faces are precious. I can’t quite put a finger on it, but the Kawaii faces (on ANYTHING!!!) drive me over the cuteness edge! Little Bat does not disappoint!! So much cuteness!!! ❤

  6. OMG this is super super adorable! I love bats, can’t wait to make this!

  7. OMG! These are so adorable, the most adorable bat plushies I ever saw! My Mum would only ever like THESE bats, there are way to many real ones in Australia here!

  8. These bats are super cute ! I will make one (or more) but I have a question : I don’t have a sewing machine, can I do the top stitching by hand and how ?

    Thank you to bring us beautiful patterns !

    • Thank you so much! For sewing the major parts of the bat I would probably use a back stitch 🙂 But for the top stitching along the wings, I would probably use a short running stitch so it looked nice on both sides ♥

  9. Choly ~ question.
    I have been trying to look for fusible web here (Philippines), but nobody knows about it. They’re all pointing me to those iron on fabric prints, which I really think is not the fusible web.

    Is it also called ‘Pellon’? I’m not sure, I believe Pellon is some kind of a lining material and doesn’t stick on fabric when ironed. I’m confused. Would you have an idea about this?

    TIA! ♥

  10. Hello, I love your patterns–so cute! What is the type of fabric you use? Do you have a particular store you like that carries it?
    Thanks!

  11. Oh wow, you are the very best! I actually wished this was for sale because this way I could leave you another review on your Etsy once i’m done with the bat because I know it will turn out AMAZING! !! Just finished the Mermicorn and Unicorn plushies from your pattern and everyone is raving about them. They are amazing. And I’ve seen the bat for sale a few days ago in your shop and since then I’m doodling my own pattern for making one but obviously, i’ve got no skills and gave up.. just to come here now and see you’re offering it for free. I’m just beyond happy and thankful for all your hard work and amazing patterns. I cannot thank you enough. You’re a rockstar!!

    • ;_; thank you so much for all the kind words! They really mean a lot! I’m so glad my patterns have been able to contribute to your already amazing store! Your Mermicorn and Unicorn turned out so incredibly adorable ♥ I know your bats are going to be fantastic as well! I can’t wait to see what you share next 😀

  12. Love these! Anything Halloween as it is my birthday! Not sure if you got my message but I didn’t get my uni orn pattern when I signed up, must but a spook in system!

    • Oh no :/ I’m sorry you didn’t get your pattern! I didn’t see your email on my subscriber list, but then sometimes WordPress does fail me like that. Thank you for checking up on it so I can get you your pattern, and thank you for your understanding! 🙂
      I’ve emailed it to the address you gave just now — I hope you enjoy it!
