Item details

Meet Nellie!

She’s cute and cuddly with soft ears you just want to pet, and a soft snout you just can’t help kissing. :-)

You can make your own Nellie with this digital PDF pattern designed especially for beginners.

What You Get

* A full-sized pattern – no enlarging needed.
* Detailed instructions with lots and lots of 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 your own huggable piggy – from sewing curves and stuffing, to stitching up that stuffing hole . You can totally do this! It’s a workshop in a pattern!

What You Need

Here’s what you’ll need to make this cutie. . .

1/2 yd. pink fleece fabric (I love using Cuddle Fleece)
2 9mm safety eyes
elastic for her curly tail
plastic pellets for filling (I like Fairfield Poly Pellets)
polyester fiberfill (I love Fairfield brand Soft Touch Poly­fil Supreme)
sewing machine, thread, basic sewing tools

I used the shaggier side of the fleece for most of Nellie, with accents of the smoother side inside her ears and on the end of her snout.

It’s a nice subtle difference in person, but you might not be able to see it in the photo.It’s fun to mix and match!


Super easy! This is a great pattern for beginners, and an easy and fun project for more experienced sewists.


She’s about 10 inches tall and about 10 inches wide. That’s an excellent size for hugging.

After your purchase you’ll receive an email allowing you to download the pattern instantly. Your very own Nellie could be snuggling up in your lap very soon. . . :-)
