Free Pattern Friday! Alpaca Plush

Hi everyone!
Another highly requested pattern today 😀 I’ve gotten so many suggestions for an alpaca, so I’m very glad I finally got to tackle it. I knew I wanted it to have the classic fuzzy face with a cute muzzle and be able to stand on four legs without too much fuss. So the shapes are pretty basic but I think using a fluffy fabric really helps sell it.
You can make it with perky ears or down-turned ears for a sweeter look. The standing version has the legs sewn on by hand, so that takes a little time. But the one with flat legs has them sewn in seam so it’s much faster. I still rated it a 3/10 because the shapes are simple, but if you’re not familiar with using faux for it might seem a little harder. In case you’re curious, the faux fur I used for this is Shannon Cuddle Sherpa (blush), and Shannon Cuddle Galaxy (plum). They were a lot of fun to work with 😀

The original pattern comes with applique templates, but there are embroidery files as well 😀 The eyes are stitched with little applique bases and the muzzles are included as well. Everything fits on 4” x 4” hoops so no one is left out! I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed designing it!

    1. Hello! If you’re a complete beginner, this beginner guide might help you get acquainted with sewing 🙂

      So with that information hopefully the things mentioned in the instructions are easier to understand. But firstly, you’d want to buy some fabric. Fleece would work best for beginners. You will also need some felt for the eyes, stuffing, thread, scissors, and a sewing needle. To make sewing the eyes easier, I recommend an adhesive called fusible web. It’s a paper-backed sheet of adhesive that you can apply with an iron. This will keep the small face pieces from moving around while you sew them in place. I hope that helps get you started!

  6. I love this pattern! I have shown so many people your website and have even started teaching someone to sew using your patterns! I have made many alpacas. They make great gifts! Thank you for giving out free patterns. Keep up the good work!

      1. Thank you so much! You have inspired me to create my own patterns. Do you have any tips for me as well as the steps to creating one?

      2. As far as tips for designing your own plush, I personally started out by drafting basic geometric shapes, like spheres, cylinders, and cones 🙂 Many 3D objects can be broken down into those shapes, so once you can draft and manipulate those it opens up a lot of possibilities ♥

  7. I absolutely love all you patterns and thank you so much for sharing some for free! I think aplaca is one of the cutests. I think the down ear ver looks a bit like sheep, so I used white fabric and added cute little ram horns. Here is link to imgur if you want to see: https://imgur.com/a/gwfkhBx
