Sue the Squirrel INSTANT DOWNLOAD Sewing Pattern PDF

Finished Size: 30 cm / 12 inches

This sweet little squirrel is named after ‘Sue’ a.k.a Suraliyama - one of the lovely sewists I met in India when I visited Bluemango. There I saw the cutest Indian squirrel which the locals call ‘aneel’ and thought it was a toy design just begging to be made! This toy pattern has some small pieces so I wouldn’t recommend it for a beginner toy maker who should start with one of my easy patterns.

Excited to make this squirrel. Review by Marcia
This is the hardest Funky Factory pattern I have made. It is probably my fault for using the fake fur for the tail. I made this for a friend and calling it the St. Louis Cardinal Rally Squirrel. (Posted on 3/29/2023)
Such a cute pattern Review by Kadra
I made this as a gift for my nephew using faux fur and it turned out so adorable! The faux fur is definitely what contributed to how tough this was to make. (Posted on 12/22/2022)
One of my favourite end results. Review by Kim
This has become one of my favourite animals I've made. Adding the chin to the head is probably the part you need to be most careful with but this is really because they are smallish parts and it is a tight angle, lots of pins and take it slow and it's fine. Love the big tail and the idea of it being attached to the body so it stays up. (Posted on 3/27/2018)
