Free Pattern Friday! T-Rex Plush

Hi everyone!
Finally got to make this highly requested pattern! Dinosaurs are always such a hit with kids so I hope this one is also well loved <3 This cute T-Rex has classic stubby little arms as well as a large head. It sits well on its own thanks to its big tail. But my favorite part by far has to be his goofy grin!

I had wanted to try giving a plush these cheeky eyes for the longest time and this t-rex was the perfect chance to show them off 😀
The plush has some darts, curved sewing, and tiny pieces, but ultimately nothing too out there compared to others. Though the teeth are done in one large double-ended dart across the head which might seem unusual. Overall I rated it a 3/10.

The original pattern comes with applique templates for both sets of eyes, but there are embroidery files as well! They are able to fit on 4” x 4” machines when the design goes across the diagonal, so be sure to look out for that in the files and the instructions.

    What a great pattern and tutorial! Thank you! Mine came out great. I did it at 3/4 size and added a mask, because COVID.

  4. Dinosaur Unicorn in camouflage colors was a wish from my son. I am very happy with the final look, putting a unicorn horn on your T-rex design. Thanks so much for the free pattern.

  5. Thank you for pattern. I never sew this kind of patterns before. My great grand babies will love them for Easter I got T-Rex. I putting initial on belly

  6. I am wondering if there is a way to attach the head to the body before stuffing it. Mine seems to be top heavy. I am having a hard time stitching the head to the body once it’s stuffed. Thanks. Adorable pattern.

    1. You could probably leave an opening elsewhere in the head to use for stuffing later after the head is attached 🙂 But if yours is top-heavy, the most common issue is there isn’t enough stuffing in the body. If you fill it firmly all the way up to the neck it should create a more supportive base and make it easier to attach the head. I hope that helps!

  7. I Love the design but am having trouble attaching the head to the body. Is there any way to do this before stuffing, perhaps leaving an opening on the body for turning? Thanks.

  8. Thank you SO much for these free patterns and embroidery files! I’ll be making one of these for each of my nieces and nephews

  9. Why is the teeth outside of the mouth? Why does the face look like that? Why is there only one row of teeth?

  10. Thank you for sharing this pattern! It was perfect for a very adorable guar from Morrowind. Love the proportions, it turns out so cute!

  11. I’m loving this pattern! I’m making seven for my classmates in my Drawing class (originally for valentines but it’s taking a lot longer than that haha)
