Anyone have any tips on how to pattern them out? Or perhaps an existing pattern that already has sleeves like that?

That looks like it could be made out of foam rubber, sculpted with an electric knife (the reciprocating kind that slices turkey or ham), and coated with enamel (not latex!) paint to get the color. Or with fabrics you could build it up like the panels of a beach ball, with nylon mesh lining the inside (interfacing might be too stiff). If you have the materials and the patience, there's resin formed around a wire mesh 'cage'.
