Here's a collection of links to sites outside of DeviantArt where you can find free plushie patterns. There are well over two hundred choices, so you're sure to find something you like.

Remember, if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, try adapting one of the patterns. For example, a tiger can easily be turned into a lion, an elephant into a wooly mammoth, an elf into a goblin, or combine the upper half of a mermaid with the lower half of a pony to get a centaur.

These are really neat but I couldn't find a pattern that looked similar to a CareBear (making it as a gift) what do you recommend? Did find the Baymax one which is awesome since I was thinking of making one of him as well Lol

I've only seen one, and that was on a russian site. If you'd like a copy, feel free to email me (viergacht at gmail) and I'll send you the file. You could probably improvise a pattern fairly well by starting with one for a raccoon, shortening the muzzle and changing where the pattern breaks apart for the different colors. 

It's an animal I'd like to plush myself, but it's a bit hard to find good reddish fur where I am!

If I type owl pattrn in google, there were always those "pillow" owls. They're might be easy to sew, but they're to colourful and everything else than realistic or look like an owl. It would be great if were there less more pillows in internet.

Question, is there any way to get a translation of the little kitty(first under cats) pattern/steps?
Reply
:iconviergacht:
Viergacht Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Professional General Artist
I can give it a shot:

The line artwork of the pattern shows how the pattern should be laid out on the fabric. They appear to be using a tightly woven cotton fabric.

Right sides together, sew the ears from one corner of the ear to the tip and down to the other corner. Turn right side out.
The face is the round piece with a small dart at the top. Sew the dart in the face piece. 
The two lens shapes directly under the face form the back of the head. Sew them together along the center seam (the edges that are facing each other), leaving a small gap so the head can be turned.
Pin the ears to the face on the right side. Sew the face to the back of the head around the outer edge, then turn the head right side out. Stuff firmy and sew the turning opening closed.
Right sides together, sew the tail pieces together leaving the base open. Turn and stuff.
Sew the inner leg pieces to the belly gusset.
Pin the tail to the dart at the butt end of the belly gusset and sew the dart closed.
Pin one body side to the belly gusset and sew from neck to rump. Repeat for the other side, then sew the two body pieces together along the spine, leaving the neck open to turn through.
Turn the body assembly right side out and stuff. Take a gathering stitch along the neck to close it off.
The pictures show the head being attached next, but I recommend embroidering the face while the head is still seperate. That way you can hide your beginning stitches where it attached to the neck.
Attach the head to the body with a ladder stitch.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything clarified.
