Freddy the Farmer Plushie: Free Crochet Plushie Pattern

Are you guys ready for the last pattern of the Farm Buddies Collection? I have had so much fun sharing the last few patterns with you and getting to see how much you loved this collection, and I look forward to doing more in the future. But today, our farm animals need their farmer! This week’s pattern is all about Freddy the Farmer, so let’s jump into his free crochet plushie pattern!

Freddy the Farmer Plushie: Free Crochet Plushie Pattern

Growing up, Freddy always loved animals. He would bring in all kinds of strays and take care of them. He knew he wanted to be around animals when he grew up, so when he got the chance to start his own farm, Freddy was over the moon! Even though it’s a lot of work to manage the farm and make sure all the animals are happy and healthy, Freddy loves it! Someday, he hopes he can grow the farm and get even more animals!

Assembly

Now that we have all the parts of the Freddy the Farmer plushie ready, we can start assembling him! Add stuffing to just the ends of the arms and legs, and all of the body if you haven’t already. Then use the tail yarn you left to sew the arms onto the body. Use the tail from the legs to attach the legs to the body.

Next, use the tail from the body to attach the head, going through one space on the body to one space on the head. Use pins to hold it in place as you sew and go through each space around. This makes sure that the head doesn’t wobble around.

Use some black yarn and a backstitch to create the outline of a smile on the face. Then go back through those backstitches and weave the yarn through them to make the line more solid. Make two small stitches above the eyes for eyebrows. Secure the yarn and trim the yarn, tucking the excess back into the head. Thread the needle with yarn in the same color as the face and stitches across3 stitches in the center of the face 4-5 times to make the nose. Secure and tuck in ends of yarn.

Then put on the overalls and add a drop of hot glue to secure straps to the front of the pants.

Optionally, stitch it in place for better hold. And then put his hat on. Glue or stitch it in place if you want to. I left all the clothing items removable so that he has a work outfit and pajamas! Optionally, use some yarn scraps and embroider patches on the overalls.
