I wanted to try a new shape so I decided to made Pikachu: a Flying Squirrel(sort of).
I apologize for the neck cramps that will be caused by looking at some of the sideways pictures.
What you will need:
2 yds of yellow fabric sweater
1/4 yd of brown fabric sweater
Sewing Machine or very sturdy sewing hands
Yellow & Brown threads
1 26" yellow zipper
a bit of polyfill or anything that can be used as stuffing
Step 1: The body
I took an hoodie that I already owned and traced that onto a large sheet of paper. I then altered the shape to suit my original design by drawing an arc that gave the sides a more rounded shape.
Taking the paper pattern, I then marked the pattern onto fabric with fabric chalk and cut out the 3 pieces.
Pin the front to back together by pinning the right sides of the fabric together.
Sew the pinned fabrics together.
