Item details

Meet Phil – the friendly caterpillar.

Doesn’t he have a sweet smile?

All those joints between his segments allow him to bend nicely for fun play. And they use a nifty (and easy) technique!

His embroidered face is safe for even the youngest babies. Add a bell or a rattle to his face segment when you stuff him for even more baby fun.

Or add a rattle to his tail and turn him into a friendly rattlesnake. :-) You’re the maker – you decide!

What You Get

* Full-sized pattern pieces – no enlarging needed.
* Detailed instructions with loads of large, step-by-step photos. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing things right.
* Links to videos teaching you every skill you’ll need to make him.

What You Need

* 1/4 yard fabric for the body
* scraps of fabric for the face and antennae
* embroidery thread for the face
* stuffing (I like Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly-fil Supreme Fiberfill)
* a few hours


* 13 inches long (though you can easily add or subtract segments to make yours longer or shorter)
* 2 3/4 inches tall (not counting the antennae)

See the final photo for a picture of a customer-made Caterpillar Phil with an actual kid for scale. :-)


He’s very easy to make, but the nifty joint technique is going to be new to most beginners. Yay! New skills!

As soon as payment is received you’ll receive a link to download the pattern. Instant gratification!
