Free Pattern Friday! Teto Plush

Hi everyone!
I’ve got another Ghibli inspired character to add to my collection! Fans of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind or Laputa Castle in the Sky hopefully recognize this adorable little fox squirrel. This cute creature has a lot of markings on his body, so I decided to keep things simple by using a flat, beanie style body. It also features big ears with accent tips, a striped tail, and a sweet little neck ruff.
The flat body makes it perfect for machine embroidery, and so to suit several hoop sizes I created a large and small version of Teto! One is about 8″ long and fits 6″ x 10″ hoops, and the other is 6″ long and fits 5″ x 7″ or 4″ x 4″ hoops. Of course the pattern comes with applique templates so you can make it with a regular sewing machine instead. If you’re doing applique, the large size is much easier, but at least the small version is there for variety!
The ears are sewn angled so they look more 3D, which is likely the hardest part of the plush. Everything else is rather basic if you’ve had a little experience with other plush patterns. For all of that, I rated it a 3/10.
I hope you all like it!

  2. Hey,

    first of all I really love the patterns you are creating and appreciate your work! When I wanted to start sewing the new free plush I noticed, that there were no patterns in the pdf. Maybe something went wrong with my download process, but i tried it over and over again, so maybe you could check if everything is included in the pdf?

  4. My youngest daughter’s name is Nausicaa… I guess I have no choice but making this one for her, though she’s nearly 11 !
    Thank you very much, from France
