This is my version (without ears) that I did with craft felt. I used the pattern I threw up exactly and it came out like so:
Before blocking he looked like this:
Essentially all i did was add seam allowance, cut out pattern pieces, trace pattern lines on felt, hand backstitch on pattern lines, turn inside out and stuff. Be careful sewing the sharp angles that come together on the trunk and derriere. Use a stiletto or some other tool to aid in stuffing if you make a little one like I did, it's also useful for turning. Once stuffed, whip closed and dip in water. It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold since craft felt is acrylic, but the water makes the material workable, and if you used a marking pen like I did, it gets that out too. Massage the form until it's in a pleasing shape and let it dry. I did add some ears this guy after taking these pictures- they're just circles with a slice cut off the side and a small dart.
