Today seems like the perfect day to release my Free stuffed robot pattern: the Love Bot. This huggable robot is easy to make with my free downloadable pattern and full tutorial to follow along.
I’ve had it on my to-do list to turn one of my husband’s drawings into a stuffed animal and this free stuffed robot pattern is based on his sketches. I combined a few sketches to create a pattern and brought the Love Bot to life.
This free stuffed robot pattern can be made with any type of fabric. I prefer to use fleece as it’s very easy to work with, is slightly stretchable, and so soft. The pattern can be sewn by hand or with a machine. The Love Bot is stuffed with poly-fil.

How to make the Love Bot Plush Robot
Download the free stuffed robot pattern. Print all pages. Cut out pattern pieces.
Pin the pattern pieces to your fleece fabric and cut out. Shapes needing multiple pieces are marked on the pattern.
Legs and Arms
The Love Bot’s striped legs are optional and one of my favorite parts of the stuffed robot. To make the striped legs you’ll need seven 2.5? x 17″ stripes (3 white stripes, 4 black stripes).
Sew the stripes together alternating colors to create a large rectangle.
Cut four leg pieces from the striped fabric.
With right sides facing, sew the leg pieces together leaving the tops open.
Turn the legs right side out starting with the foot. Push the foot through. Using a chopstick or similar, push seams out.
With right sides together, sew arm pieces together leaving the tops open.
Similar to the legs, flip the arms right side out starting with the hands.
Fill the legs and arms with Poly-fil stuffing.
Head and Antenna
Fold the antenna piece in half the long way and sew. Flip right side out.
Using your sewing machine or by hand, baste 1/4″ around the light circle leaving long tails. Pull the tails to tighten into a ball. Add a little stuffing into the light.
Pull the thread tails tight and tie to secure the light into a ball.
Stuff the seam edges into the antenna piece. Hand sew into place. Set aside.
Sew the robot eyes onto the head piece.
With wrong sides together, sew the cap top and bottom pieces onto the head piece. The head caps are intended to have the raw edges on the outside.
Sew the head and with caps right sides together leaving the holes open on the top and bottom.
Push the antenna into the head and hand sew onto the top cap piece.
Flip the head right side out. Fill loosely with stuffing.
Sew the heart onto the center of one of the body panels.
Sew the four side triangle panels onto the front and back panels.
With right sides together, sandwich the arms in between the triangle side panels. Pin in place. Sew together to secure the arms onto the body sides.
Sew the shoulder panel onto the top of the body on three sides leaving the back edge open. This is easiest with the arms pointing downward.
Flip the arms upward to point out the open shoulder edge. Push the legs into the body and pin the edges onto the bottom edge of the body.
Flip the body right side out. Fill the body with stuffing.
Sew the open edge of the shoulder panel to the body panel. Hand sew the head to piece into the neck hole. And you’re done!
Give this Love Bot to a kid near you. :)
I hope you like the Love Bot as much as we do. Happy Valentine’s Day!
