E-Z: Kirby's Epic Yarn Plush

FeaturedContest Winner
Oh My God, I am so so excited about this game!  When I heard that Nintendo was finally going to release a new Kirby game for the Wii back in 2007, I was ecstatic!  The Kirby series are some of my absolute favorite releases from Nintendo, and his platformer- based games are always extremely inventive and fun. And, when I finally got to see the new trailer for the game, Kirby's Epic Yarn, when it released online after E3, I absolutely fell in love with it!  The design is so cool and the game play looks amazing!  And, to top it off, the entire thing is set in DIY-esque world!  AWESOME! 

So, for this instructable, in my immense enthusiasm for the Fall 2010 release date, I'll be showing you how you can easily create the yarn envisioned Kirby character!

Step 1: Special Thanks

Before I begin, I want to give a Special Thanks credit to slamacow on Youtube for posting his amazing video on his own process for creating the original Kirby Yarn plush.  This video totally inspired me to create a version of my own, and it brilliantly details the step by step procedure on how to create him.

Step 2: Materials!

Picture of Materials!
Let's begin shall we?  A lot of these materials can be found at craft stores (ie Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics) and are relatively inexpensive.

Craft Materials:
  1. Thick Pink Yarn
  2. Thick Red Yarn
  3. Brown & Light Brown Yarn (of regular thickness)
  4. Black Felt
  5. Blue Felt
  6. White Felt
  7. Off-White Felt
  8. Pink Felt
  9. Craft Glue (I prefer Tacky Glue)
  10. Scissors
  11. Needle

Other Materials
  1. Transparency Paper

Step 3: Download Template

First off, download this  pattern template for the character.  Then print it out on regular and transparency paper.  This is the pattern we will be using to create our Kirby Epic Yarn plush.
