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 above. Print all pages at 100%. Cut out 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.
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).
Sew the stripes together with a 1/4″ seam allowance, alternating colors to create a large rectangle.
Cut four leg pieces from the striped fabric.
With right sides facing, sew the leg pieces together around the perimeter leaving the top open for stuffing.
Starting with the foot, turn the legs right side out. Use a chopstick or similar to push the seams out. Set aside.
With right sides together, sew two arm pieces around the perimeter, leaving the top open. Set aside.
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 Heart Sewing Pattern
Make the easy, loveable, huggable, squeezable heart.
Head and Antenna
Fold the antenna piece in half the long way and sew up the side. Flip right side out.
Using your sewing machine or by hand, baste 1/4″ 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.
Sew the robot eyes onto center of 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.
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.
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.
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 down the side panels to together to secure the arms in place.
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. Sew across the bottom.
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!
