Hooded Hello Kitty Pattern

Updated: May 11



I absolutely adore Hello Kitty and I think those Hello Kitty plushies where she’s wearing various costumes are so adorable that I had to make my own HK with an outfit design of my own!

This pattern was quite a bit complicated to design and I actually ended up scrapping the original design because it just wasn’t quite on the mark. The head from my previous Hello Kitty design was just about perfect as it was, so I just carried that over to the new design and saved myself a little bit of work. I did however increase the body size compared to the old design as I feel this size is way more fitting and she looks a bit chunky and baby-like and I think it’s adorable!

This pattern has quite a bit more pieces than most of my other patterns, and is just a little more on the difficult side, but I think even a beginner can tackle this pattern with a bit of patience.

This is the third installment in my Sanrio character plushies collection, so if you like this pattern, be sure to check out my original Hello Kitty and my Gudetama patterns!

Now, let's get crafting!! :D

Now is a great time to embroider the face. I like to mark with pins where the eyes, nose, and whiskers should be first, so you get a good idea of where everything should be, and then embroider with yarn.


I usually use a piece of contrasting yarn to mark the middle of the face so that I know nothing should end up crooked. I use 4 embroidery back stitches for the eyes and six for the nose and then I move onto the whiskers when the eyes and nose are on place.

For assembly you will want to construct the head first with the ears and embroidery, then add the hood. Sew the inner ears onto the outer ears for the hood and then attach them to the hood, I find attaching the ears easiest when the hood is up. After finishing the hood you’ll want to add the body to the head. You’ll need to sew through the hood layer into the head; this will take a bit of patience. After adding the body to the head you can finish up adding the arms, feet, and tail.
