Print the pattern and cut from fabric. For information about changing the size of the pattern, click here. This pattern is super easy: Cut one of each piece (4 total) and you’re ready to go. The width of the zip tie casing can easily be changed, but generally the larger sizes utilize a 1/4″ and the smaller would due with 1/8″ zip ties. Use the chart below for fabric requirements:
Sew the back to the bum:
Match the notches on the back and bum. Pin the arch in place and sew with the suggested seam allowance per size. Slash the curve of the bum at the seam allowance. Be sure to slash the seam allowance where the stitching ends on either side of the bum.
Sew one shoulder of the back with one shoulder of the front.
Fold open the pieces and attach the zip tie casing. To prepare the zip tie casing, fold in one end and press. Measure the casing to the length of the neckline. Be sure to leave at least 1/4″ of space at the ends to allow for a seam allowance on the shoulder.
Slash the seam allowance around the neck.
With right sides facing, pin the front to the back and sew around the entire perimeter.
Clip the seam allowance at the neck where the seam folds it over.
Slash the seam allowance around the curves and clip the points.
Turn the body right side out.
To attach the limbs, push it into the body from the flat end. when the cloth part of the limb is inside out, and aligned (this is important!), attach the zip tie.
Stuff the body and attach the head.
