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.

However, 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 woolly 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.

Note: some pages may need to be translated or require sign-up to view free patterns.

Check out Pattern-Depot for stuffed toy and costume patterns here on DeviantArt.

Hi, thanks for compiling this amazing list!
I found this page with a few free vintage patterns for dolls and one pony, I think it's not here yet?…
I also found this free pattern by famed 1930s doll maker Edith Flack Ackley:
Also, these links don't work anymore:
WildArts Doll
Dollies Without Borders
Peasan Girl Doorstop
Steiner Doll
Night Garden Doll
The WildArt dolls link, however, I found available and working on Archive:…
A friend of mine owns quite a few vintage patterns in PDF format that she would be happy to share, the oldest dating back to 1914. What would be the easiest way to upload them somewhere so I can link them here? Would Google Drive work?
Viergacht Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2018  Professional General Artist
Oh nice, thanks for the head's up on the bad links and the patterns! I'll add them right off :)
As far as I can tell, yes, google drive is probably the best place to link to.
GossamerAdopts Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
Okay, great!
First off, here are a few more patterns from the internet:
A pattern/tutorial for a Japanese "bunka" style doll:…
A pattern for a Japanese "osarukko" style doll (scroll down):…
This one that's simply called "manikin" and I think is supposed to resemble an old porcelain doll:…
And now, for my friend's patterns... I hope the links work:
Annie + several outfits:…
Twinky from the 60s + several outfits and wigs:…
Victorian/Edwardian style boys Teddy and Patrick:…
Ragdoll with eyes that open and close:…
Doll in a rain coat:…
Big doll with pigtails:…
Peasant/dirndl doll:…

Dolls in colonial/Georgian dress:…
My friend calls this one the Big Head Doll:…
A sock doll:…
Six cute diverse dolls:…
The aforementioned authentic Edwardian doll, from 1914:…
Booklet on rag doll making from the 20s or 30s:… (WARNING: USES THE N WORD, BLACKFACE LOOKING DOLLS, GOLLIWOGS, AND OTHER RACIST STEREOTYPES - not in an insulting context, just as a product of its time)
Sequel to said booklet:… (SAME WARNING AS ABOVE)
Again, I hope they work... and you find them useful!
GossamerAdopts Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
I forgot this: While we're on the topic of problematic language, the "Twinky" pattern uses the slur "gypsy" for Romani. It's okay if you don't want to use the patterns that use problematic language, but if you do, would a short warning behind the link be okay? I don't want someone to stumble over a slur by doing something as harmless as looking for a nice doll sewing pattern to use.

Do you know any free patterns for life sized wolf plushies?
Viergacht Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2017  Professional General Artist
I don't know of any offhand, but you could reasonably just size up a smaller pattern. The only caveat is that if you wanted it to stand up on its own it will need some kind of internal "skeleton" of wood, plastic pipes or wire, similar to a taxidermy mount.
RebelSavant99 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nah i want something like a ragdoll that will just flop around x3

im currently trying to make a mini version to see if the patterns i designed work
Rhabwar-Troll-stock Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2017
That's a good idea. Fwiw, When I've made super-big plushes, I find it useful to stuff the head with low-loft stuffing and pack it in good, then sew a muslin barrier inside the neck area to keep it in, otherwise the stuffing will shift around too much.
RebelSavant99 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah that sounds like a great idea thanks!

It's a great way to work through leftoverts and scraps, I've found. 
FanguoftheFlowers Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry to bother you, do you know any good plush pattern tutorials for like general things? I've been making my own patterns recently by reading tutorials and studying existing patterns. 

I've read the Four-legged animal tutorial here on tumblr but most tutorials are just following existing patterns rather than tips to make your own.
Viergacht Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016  Professional General Artist
No bother at all!
I think most folks learned like I did, and you describe, by back-engineering from finished patterns. I've actually been working on a book that describes how to design patterns but it's far from finished at this point. There aren't many tutorials online for general pattern making. While-She-Naps has a good series on different aspects of pattern design:…

Here on DA :icondiffeomorphism: has some excellent guides

I've also used these books, which are long out of print but still full of good info:………

And then there's my group :iconpatern-depot: which has a Techniques gallery full of stuff. Hope this helps! :)
FanguoftheFlowers Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much!
I'll check them all out. I read through the group and learnt some interesting things from both tutorials and comments themselves. It's nice to have such a helpful community on dA.

Viergacht Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2016  Professional General Artist
I have never seen a pattern for one online - your best bet would probably be to ask someone who's made one for permission to use their pattern, or to commission someone to draft a pattern for you.
