I designed this plushie in homage to Joe Ledbetter's awesome Gamerita vinyl toy.

He is a fun project that requires a bit of confidence on a sewing machine, but the pictures should help you through the tricky bits!!

i was going to do just a pattern, but all the extra bits would cost fortunes to buy, as you'd have to buy little packs of everything and have a bunch of useless bits left over afterwards. When i started out sewing as a kid i loved those plush kits you got in craft shops, and i wanted to bring that feeling with a grown up kind of vibe to these kits :D
They're so awesome! I'll have to learn how to sew now.

Beyond cute.  I love your projects, ma'am.  They are by far some of the strangest, but sweetest projects I have seen.  I look forward to seeing more!
