March 2024 – Soft Toys/ Softies/ Cuddles

Starting 01 March 2024, through to 31st March 2024, Sewing for Charity Australia’s main project will be sewing and knitting/ crocheting soft toys and comfort items for babies and children in need.

Soft toys and comforters.

Patterns & Tutorials

Where a link to a tutorial or further information is provided, please read all linked information before proceeding.

There are no set patterns for this project. Instead we ask you to follow these guidelines:

  • Softies and comforters can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, machine embroidered
  • No larger than 30cm
  • New filling must be used
  • All eyes and facial features must be sewn on. No safety eyes, stick on eyes etc
  • No loose ribbons. If using a ribbon it must be stitched down very securely
  • Boys are often forgotten, please consider juggling balls, bears, cute monsters, figures from popular culture – even fruit and worms get a giggle!
  • Babies love soft heads attached to comforters and flopsie wabits


Please label your donations with type, size and which project they are for (eg – Lap Blanket, Knitted, May 2024)

This will greatly help our volunteers to sort and distribute them as quickly as possible.
