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 sewing pattern and full tutorial to follow along.
It’s been 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 Plush Robot pattern 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 above. Print all pages at 100%. Cut out and assemble the paper pattern pieces.
Pin the paper pattern pieces to your fleece fabric and cut out the shapes. Shapes needing multiple pieces are marked on the pattern.
Making the Love Bot 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 (three white stripes and four black stripes).
Lay the stripes right sides together and sew the stripes together with a 1/4″ seam allowance, alternating colors to create a large rectangle.
Using the leg pattern piece, cut four leg pieces from the striped fabric.
With right sides facing, sew two leg pieces together with a 1/4″ seam allowance leaving the top, straight edge open for turning. Make sure to backstitch at the beginning and end to secure threads.
Starting with the foot, turn the legs right side out. Use a chopstick or similar to push the seams out. Repeat with the second leg.
With right sides together, sew two arm pieces around the perimeter, leaving the top edge open. Repeat with the second arm.
Similar to the legs, flip the arms right side out by pushing the hands out through the opening.
Lightly stuff the legs and arms with Poly-fil stuffing.
Free Stuffed Valentine Heart Sewing Pattern
Make the easy, loveable, huggable, squeezable heart.
Love Bot Head and Antenna
Fold the antenna piece in half the long way and sew up the side, backstitching at the beginning and end. Flip right side out.
Using your sewing machine or by hand, baste stitch around the light circle piece leaving long tails of thread. Gently pull the tails to tighten the circle 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 of the light into one end of the antenna piece. Hand sew the light and antennae together. Set aside.
Pin the robot eyes onto the center of the head piece and sew in place.
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 but will work either way.
Fold the head piece in half and pin or clip together. Sew the head and with caps right sides together leaving the holes open on the top and bottom. Make sure to backstitch.
Push the antenna into the head and hand sew onto the top cap piece.
Flip the head right side out through the bottom hole. Lightly stuff the head with stuffing. Set aside.
Free Teddy Bear Sewing Pattern: Love Bear
Make a simple teddy bear with a heart on it’s belly with my free plush sewing pattern.
Love Bot Body
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 facing, sandwich the arms in between the triangle side panels. Baste stitch or pin in place. Sew down the side panels together to secure the arms in place.
Sew the shoulder panel onto the top of the assembled body on three sides (front, left side, right side) leaving the back edge open. This is easiest with the arms pointing downward out the bottom of the body.
Once the shoulder panel is attached on three sides, flip the arms upward to poke out of the opening. Push the legs into the body at the same opening, and pin in between the layers at the bottom edge of the body. Sew across the bottom to close the body and secure the legs.
Flip the body right side out, and stuff it.
Finishing the Love Bot
Sew the opening closed with a ladder stitch. Hand sew the robot 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.
