Free Pattern Friday! Shark Plush

17 Comments

Hi everyone!
A bit of a simpler pattern today, which should be nice for beginners! It’s a highly-requested partner to the dolphin and narwhal plush I made previously 😀 A cute baby shark!
It has just a few pattern pieces like the ones before it and comes together quickly. I rated it a 2/10 — the most difficult part is probably the belly, since it comes to a point in the back of the tail like a gusset. But it’s not terribly hard to do. So if you’re a beginner this would be a good way to get acquainted with gussets. If you’ve never sewn anything curved before this might feel more like a 3/10.
The applique templates include a classic round eye, a big toothy grin, and silly anime-style eyes so you can make a tsundere shark just like the internet meme :3 Each version has embroidery files included as well – with the teeth done in applique. All fit on 4” x 4” hoops so no one is left out!

Would you like to see how I designed this pattern? You can support me on Patreon for as little as $1 and get behind-the-scenes details!

  1. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for this cute pattern! In the embroidery file, the Classic Eye has a V shape with 35 stitches above the eyeball. Is this an eyebrow or placement stitches? Reinforcement for the gusset?

  12. Thank You!

  13. I’ve just discovered your website, thank you for all these patterns ! You’re super talented, now I want to make dozens of plushies *-*
    I’m just wondering, is there any efficient and gentle way to wash this type of plushies ? Since there isn’t any zip on the plush, I’m afraid that putting them in the washing machine could make the stuffing agglomerate. Do you recommand a way to wash plushies ?

    • Thank you for the kind words about my work! I’m glad you’re enjoying the patterns ♥
      I usually have good luck putting the plush in a very gentle cycle with a mesh washing bag, but to be extra safe you could also just spot clean any troublesome areas with a very small bit of dishwashing liquid 🙂
      I hope that helps!

  14. Perfect for shark week!
