Valiant Vulture Pudgy Plumes Soft Toy Sewing Pattern and Tutorial DIGITAL PDF


Who knew this scavenger could be so darn cute!


Yes, even a vulture can be cute and cuddly

Imagination can take you Anywhere!

This little scavenger has some junk in the trunk making him extra squishy and fun to snuggle.  This pattern includes templates and instructions to make a ‘classic’ vulture such as the Griffon Vulture and a Turkey Vulture.  

This project has some other variations and options.  As a bonus you have two wing and two tail options to choose from!  While I prefer to sew my birds using a sewing machine, they can be sewn together by hand (as one of my pattern testers did).  You will be sewing opposing curves and optional applique.  Some hand sewing is needed to close openings used for stuffing, sew the small circle on the foot, attach the large wing option and some other optional embellishments.
