Pudgy Plumes Flamingo, Ostrich and Vulture Soft Toy Sewing Pattern PDF


A flock of cute quirky birds!


Yes, even a vulture can be cute and cuddly

Imagination can take you Anywhere!

This eclectic flock has some junk in the trunk making them extra squishy and fun to snuggle.  Choose your bird or make all three…actually four!  This pattern includes templates and instructions to make an ostrich, flamingo, griffon vulture and a turkey vulture.  

This project is full of 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 curves and optional applique.  Some hand sewing is needed to close openings used for stuffing and some other optional embellishments.

  • Deceptively easy to make
  • Detailed  step by step instructions 
  • Photos accompany each step
  • Full size pattern pieces
  • Tips for best results
  • Variations included
  • PDF digital download, available instantly after purchase
  • List of vendors for various materials

  • Prints on standard 8.5″ x 11″ printer paper.  Some pieces need to be joined with tape to create the full size template.

Can be sewn by hand as done by one of my pattern testers!
