Cloth Character ITH Basic Body Arms Up!

Similar to the “basic body” pattern, but this one has arms up and front pocket stitching on the front of the pants.  Plus, the stitch order allows you to use different fabrics for pants and shirt so they get built-in clothing.

It has small attached arms, small upper body, with wide hips and attached legs & feet.  This pear-shaped body fits all the Cloth Character heads, as well as the add-ons like hands, clothes, and more.



  • Only requires one hooping for the body in your choice of 5×7(small), 6×10 (medium), or 8×12(large) machine embroidery hoop. (you’ll need another hooping for the head, not sold in this listing)
  • After you’ve stitched it in-the-hoop, cut out, turn right-side-out, then stuff and glue closed.  No machine or hand sewing required!
  • Fits all the cloth character heads/faces and add-ons.

All designs are digital downloads for embroidery machines.  Files will be available immediately after purchase on a download page.
