King Boo





August 20, 2009


King Boo was a request by my girls. I made him on a whim really, watching a movie with the kids. He looks a bit ragged here, because the girls were chasing each other around the house with him... I figure he's been through the ringer already :D

I'll see what I can do about getting some better pictures of him, if I can wrestle him away from the girls long enough. LOL


As always, if you have any problems with or questions about the pattern, just message or email me, I'll get back to you as soon as I can .


King Boo

Materials:

WW yarn in white and gold, small bits of black yarn
G hook
Fiberfill
Pieces of felt in black, white and red
Glue on type jewels for crown (or assorted scraps of felt)
Yarn Needle

Notes:

Gauge isnt important, as long as your choice of yarn and needle result in a tight stitch so that stuffing material won't show through.

Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches that should be in each round or row.

Row 2-6: same as first point.

After final point, glue on jewels or cut pieces of colored felt and glue/sew on as shown to each point.


ASSEMMBLY:

I recommend pinning all pieces in place before sewing. In this particular case, I finished the face before I pinned and sewed the wings/tail/crown so that I could be sure of proper placement. Embroider the eyebrows as shown. Add pieces of black felt for eyes.

Cut a piece of red felt for the mouth and some white for the teeth. (you might find cutting them from paper first is best, so you can be sure of the size and shape before cutting your felt) Cut a long piece that is rounded on one end for the tongue. Run a length of sewing thread through the flat end and gently pull to gather, sew to mouth as shown so that it drapes over.

Add wings, tail and crown as shown.

There are many other Boo characters ... all are based on this basic shape. Try them all :)
