Item details

See that cute little green caterpillar? She has a secret! When you turn her inside out she transforms into a sparkly purple butterfly!

This clever softie is fun to make and fun to play with. And that "Wow!" moment when you first turn it inside out and see the transformation is priceless!

This listing is for a digital PDF sewing pattern. It will be emailed to you immediately after purchase.

Check out my blog post to see an animation of the caterpillar/butterfly toy in action!

To make the caterpillar and butterfly you'll need some fleece (less than 1/4 yard of each color), cord or ribbon, and sparkly organza for the pretty wings (again, less than 1/4 yard). The eyes are white and black felt and the mouths are stitched with embroidery floss.

This pattern is intended for confident beginners. Although it is not difficult to sew, the construction is a bit more advanced than a simple softie. If you are looking to learn some new skills and are curious how inside out toys are made, this is the perfect pattern for you!

The finished toy is 8.5" x 2.5".
