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 Need
* 1/4 yard fabric for the body

* 13 inches long (though you can easily add or subtract segments to make yours longer or shorter)

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!
