Fa la la la la la la la….llama! Llamas and alpacas are great stuffed animals to sew because they are so soft and furry! This free stuffed llama sewing pattern and tutorial will show you how to make a DIY llama plush with faux fur. This might be the perfect gift to stick at the top of a Christmas stocking!
I used super soft cuddle fabric from Shannon fabrics for this. Shannon Fabrics has hundreds of super soft minky, fur, and cuddle fabrics. They sent me a whole bunch to work with so I’m excited to show you projects using them in the next few months! The background fabric is also a Shannon Fabrics (yak faux fur), it’s amazing!
Let’s get sewing!
Materials for llama plush
Instructions for stuffed llama sewing pattern
Use a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Print out the pattern and tape it together. Cut out 2 body pieces, 2 ear pieces and 2 tail pieces from llama cuddle fabric. Cut out 2 ears from pink cotton.
Use either iron-on vinyl or puffy paint to create eyes. If using iron-on vinyl, cut the fur down in the area you are applying the eyes to before applying. If using puffy paint, wait to dry before continuing!
Sew along the belly of the llama, 1/4″ from the raw edge using a regular stitch length. Repeat on both body pieces. This stitching will help you close the opening later.
Sew pink ear piece to llama fabric piece with right sides together. Repeat with second ear. Sew tail pieces together with right sides together.
Turn all pieces. Fold the ear pieces in half with the pink on the inside. Stitch to hold fold. Baste one ear to each side of the llama head. Baste tail to the back angled slightly.
Sew llama body pieces together with right sides together. Leave a 1-2″ opening at the belly of the llama.
Turn llama right side out and stuff. Then sew the opening closed with a needle and thread.
