Aipom Plushie


I finally got around to making Aipom.  I apologize for the lighting in the pictures,  I'll try to get some better pictures for ya when time allows  :D   We were kind of in a hurry, and I was also weeding and watering the vegetable garden before it got dark...  Hopefully these are enough to help you with the pattern.



The pattern hasn't been tested by anyone but me,  so if you find any mistakes,  please let me know so I can correct them as soon as possible :D

Final Assembly:

I HIGHLY recommend pinning all pieces together before sewing to make sure you have all pieces you need in the places you like and that everything is to your liking. 

Sew head to body (matching the two ‘neck openings’)  Sew  ears to either side of the head as shown, positioning as desired.   Sew the face inset to the front of the face,  evenly placed between the ears.   Some ‘stretching’ may be required to get the desired shape exactly as you want it,  pinning first is very helpful.

Sew the body inset to the front center of the body as shown.

Sew  arms to either side of the upper body near the ‘neck’.

Sew the feet to the bottom (closed) end of the leg as shown.  Sew open end of leg to the bottom of the body positioning as you like.

Sew Tail to back of body centered at the bottom.

Sew the points on top of the head,  centered between the ears.

Eyes and mouth are fairly simply shapes,  a larger circle of white with a smaller  circle of black.  Sew on as shown.   Mouth is white felt,  sew on as shown and using some black sewing thread,  create the ‘lines’ for teeth as shown.

Using black thread,  create the ‘toe’ line buy running a few stitches around the front of the foot to the center as shown.
