Eevee Plush

 

I finally decided to tackle Eevee.  The pictures I'm afraid don't do the doll justice at all.   She's really much cuter than the pictures show.  LOL 

Eevee can be a tough one mostly because she's all shades of brown.  The 'collar' is worked a little different,  but it's basic and simple, and allows you alot of room to 'arrange' it however you like.

If I have one great weakness, it's doing the faces.  I'm sure that all of you wonderful crafters will be able to give her a much better face,  I'm afraid that faces just aren't my strong suit.  LOL 

If you have any problems with the pattern,  please let me know, I'll fix it as soon as possible.  If you just get confused,  post your question and we'll get that fixed up too.  :)

Sew the foot to the small end of the upper leg at a slight angle (see the pictures for reference).   DOUBLE CHECK the leg against the body before sewing on the foot,  as there will be a right and left leg.  Make sure the foot will be facing the correct direction when leg is sewn to the body.  After the foot is securely sewn to the leg,  the upper leg can be stuffed moderately firmly.  The 'hip' is *very* lightly stuffed during the process of sewing the leg to the body (same as with the shoulder of the front legs)

F/O.  Sew the front panel to the center of the 'collar' as shown in the pictures.

FINAL ASSEMBLY:

Sew the collar (round 1) to the bottom center of the head.  Use the rounds of the head to help keep the collar centered and even.  Be sure that the 'front' panel is where you want the front of the head to be. 

Sew the head/collar to the body.  Head is sewn at a slight angle over the 'rounded' end,  with most of the head placed to the top of the body.  (see pictures to get a better idea).  Sew front legs to body with the 'shoulder' on the outside of the body.  Lightly stuff the shoulder as you sew around it to give it more shape.  

Sew the back legs to the body as shown,  again,  stuffing the hips very lightly as you sew around them to give them more shape.  Stuffing the hips and shoulders is optional,  if you prefer not to that's fine as well.

Sew tail to body as shown.  Sew ears to head as shown.

Nose is a few whipstitches at center of face.  Eyes are cut from scraps of felt.  Large ovals of brown,  smaller ovals of black and two very small circles of white.  Sew or glue to face as shown.

Mouth is embroidered as shown.
