Cute and easy sewing patterns to make your own quirky animal plushies

Hello! I’m Vicki; maker, illustrator and big fan of pandas behind Andapanda patterns.

I've been creating and selling plushie animal friends for more than ten years. Over this time my plushies have given thousands of hugs, been sold in shops, museums and craft fairs in Barcelona, taken part in the 'Plush You!' exhibition and been used as props in a Spanish TV programme.

I’m super excited to share my patterns, tutorials and what I’ve learned along the way with you to help you make your own plushie friends! Whether you’ve just taken up sewing as a hobby or you’ve been sewing for years; you’ll find a pattern here for your next craft project, baby shower gift or birthday present!

*** How Andapanda started ***
While studying illustration, I started drawing animal characters and bringing them to life by combining my sketches with my childhood love of sewing. I taught myself how to use a sewing machine and make plushies - through blog posts, books and a lot of trial and error!

This experience has inspired me to write every pattern tutorial with beginners in mind, by including super detailed instructions, drawings and tips. Some patterns may be more suited for intermediate sewists and up, but I believe that with enough patience, persistence and support everyone can learn to make their own cute plushie!

*** About the Andapanda family ***
All of the animals love siestas, big hugs and bringing a smile to your face! They can’t wait to be find a new home with you, decorate a room, be given as gifts or spark the curiosity of little ones.

If you don’t see a pattern here yet for your favourite animal let me know. It might just be the next to join the family! I can’t wait to see all the animal plushies you make!
