Need a project for when you're away from your crafting table (computer desk)? Bring a bit of the Minecraft world into real life with a cuddly little creeper pal!

The creeper's blocky geometric shape makes this a great beginner project for people unfamiliar with sewing. Also it's your best shot at giving a creeper a hug without it costing you the north wall of your house.

Step 1: That's a very nice EVERYTHING you have there...

Tools:
     Ruler
     Erasable Marker - you can find one made especially for fabric at any craft store
     Fabric Shears - Aka big ol' pair of scissors
     Sewing needle
     Pins

Materials:
     Green Fabric (fleece is good) - About half a yard should do, go to the fabric store if you don't feel like punching sheep and cooking cacti
     Matching spool of thread
     Fiberfill - Stuffing
     Either black embroidery thread or black fabric scraps

Step 2: Anatomy Of A Creeper

Thankfully, Minecraft's pixelated graphics and geometric shapes make the creeper one of the easiest patterns you will find. For my pattern I translated every two pixels into one inch.

Head: 4" X 4" X 4"
Body: 2" X 4" X 6"
Legs: 2" X 2" X 3"  - Make four of these

Map out the panels for each side of these boxes on your fabric. Be sure to keep about a half inch allowance around the edges of each outline. Keep in mind that you do not need to cut out the top side of the body because it is closed off by the creeper's head.
When you cut the pieces out do not cut along the lines you drew. Instead, cut about a half-inch  to a fourth-inch outside the line.

The pieces should be easy to recognize, but if you think you will have trouble mixing them up I suggest labeling each part, or cutting out only the pieces of the section you are working on.

My 11-year-old daughter also found some nice fleece at Joann's at 50% off after Christmas. She was initially worried that there would be a ton of hand-stitching, but eventually found that she could actually do quite a lot of it by machine. Here's the Creeper she did having a picnic.

I found some green fleece with mixed light/dark in it. Thanks for the great instructions. This was my first time trying to hand sew and it turned out awesome.

Do you have to hand sew or can you use a machine?
I hand sew it but you probably could use a machine.

I wanna make one
Is it possible to stitch the head and body together with a sewing machine without having to slip stitch? Except for the back, of course...

DucttapeNinja can you use cotton balls to stuff the creeper?
DucttapeNinja (author)  replay2901 year ago
I don't see why not.
replay2901 year ago
P.S DucttapeNinja do you play Minecraft? BTW you don't have to punch/ kill the sheep you can shear the sheep. You can dye the wool by punching cactus in the desert biome and then you put the cactus or cacti in the furnace with coal and wait,then put the wool and green dye in the crafting table and DER YOU GO :3
DucttapeNinja (author)  replay2901 year ago
Hehe, yeah. I made this Instructable back when Minecraft was still in beta, when you would shear sheep by punching their wool off.
replay2901 year ago
Really, I had no trouble, everything was smooth sailing and I've been working with a plush toothless, it came out perfectly but the creeper was really easy but the seams would show and I had like an inch to sew.
replay2901 year ago
DucttapeNinja, mah creepah turned out to be VERY MESSED UP!!! Can you help me?
and can I use felt, because I used felt to make my creeper.
DucttapeNinja (author)  replay2901 year ago
As far as I can tell that shouldn't be much of a problem. What did you have trouble with?
i will be making a big one for my minecraft child. thanks.
