I finished this little guy yesterday. A little late for Halloween, but luckily The Nightmare before Christmas covers 2 holidays.  Grin

and with his Santa hat

He is made with felt and stands at about 9" tall. 10" with the hat.

In case anyone wants it, I scanned my pattern and made a printable version in photoshop. enjoy.


eta:  whoops, I think the bottom of the pants part is upside down. it needs to fit over the body, so the wider side is up, not down.  Tongue

That's awesome!  Is he all felt?  How did you ever manage to get his arms and legs skinny enough?  That's so cool...

He's is wonderful. I am also wondering how did you make the arms and legs so skinny?

Oh my gosh! I love it. Hmmm,  maybe I can try to make something like this for my cousin is a NBC freak. Thanks for sharing it is amazing.

PERFECT!! I've been wanting to make some Jack toys to give out as presents at Christmas. I just hope I can get them half this good! Does he have anything in him to make him poseable?

omg, thank you all.  Kiss

there is nothing inside his arms or legs, because they are so skinny. i wanted to put chop sticks inside the legs, but couldn't find any in our house. I did however find one mikado stick, which I broke a piece off to put inside his neck, to make it stand up and support the head.

to make the limbs so thin, I cut off a stripe of felt and then just sewed it into a tube using the ladder stitch. obviously it would have been impossible to turn inside out, that's why I used that stitch.

if I ever make another one I might buy chop sticks or maybe wire for his arms and legs. right now, he can't really stand or sit properly.  Undecided
