Intro: Clefairy Plushie
My own pattern and guide for making a "Clefairy" Pokemon plush.
The pattern can be printed straight out and cut out as i have sized it so it fits :) The tail and body were a tad too big so ive given them numbers which you can just join up.
Step 1: Materials Needed
For this design i used:
~1 metre of pink polar fleece, folded in half
~ Brown or black polar fleece for ear tips
~ Black, white, red and pink embroidering thread
~ Polyester or woolen stuffing
You'll need a sewing machine, and an embroidery hoop!!! Please use one, i didn't on this because i was lazy and the face didn't turn out to great, so please get one for this!
Step 2: Patterns
Here are the patterns. I've edited them on Word so they should be the correct size :) If they don't totally match up no worries, it won't matter.
Step 3: Step 1
Pin cut out patterns onto fabric. Then cut out the fabric.
Step 4: Step 2
Sew (with the fluffier sides together) the feet, arms, tail, head curl, wings.
Take 1 ear base and attach 1 ear tip and sew together, do this for all ear pieces, then attach like above.
Step 5: Step 3
This is the horrible tedious part. The embroidery. Take one half of the body and drawn on where you would like your eyes, mouth and cheeks to be.
Thread a needle with embroidery thread and attach your fabric to your embroidery hoop. Then stitch in the facial features. If you're unsure how to do an embroidery stitch, a quick internet can show you how. I just do long stitches up and down.
Step 6: Step 4
Once your happy with the face, place the arm onto your first piece of body (the piece you just embroidered).
Once your happy with where they are, mark on the fabric where the arm holes are. You then need to cut out and stick the arms into the body.
Pin the inside of the arms to the inside of the body so there is a hole which allows you to stuff the arms. Then either machine or hand stick around the edges.
Step 7: Step 5
Stuff the tail and head curl with stuffing and attach to body like the arms, head curl should be positioned so it's slightly off the top centre, tail should be in the lower back middle region. Attach wings on either side of tail, the same as the arms.
Step 8: Step 6
Take the ears and stuff them, then pin onto the main body fabric as seen in figure 1.
Do same for legs, stuff then pin.
Take the other body side and pin so wings, tail are inside and the inside is now facing out.
Step 9: Step 7
Stitch along the whole body, leaving only a hole between the legs. It should have the tail sticking through the bottom where you left the hole.
Now put your hand through the legs and turn it inside out, it should easily fit.
Step 10: Step 8
Now, stuff anything you left, for example the arms or wings.
Once all the smaller pieces have been finished, you should be left with a floppy boddy and two long snake like pieces.
Take the head piece and curl it down, the get a needle and thread and stitch the curl so it stays. I did this by starting at the tip and sewing it and i rolled it, so i ended up sewing alone the line using an invisable stitch. Then, to make it sit on the head, pull the curl to the left so its now in the middle and do a few stitches so it connects to the head.
Do the same to the tail, except leaving it so its in a coil and not moving so it's lying flat.
Step 11: Final Step
Now, stuff the body and do another invisable stitch to close up the whole between the legs.
And you're done :D Hopefully this guide helped, it was difficult to explain some things so feel free to ask me for advice on anything :)
