I made this stuffed little moose like 5 times for christmas and gave it to my friends.
do you like him?

okay i made another one to show you how its done. i was in a hurry, this is why it looks so crappy!
i used corduroy this time, but i do not recommend that! you better use felt or fleece.
i also stitched it together using the sewing machine, but it definately looks better when its done by hand;)

okay, here we go:

you copy the pattern, leaving some seam allowance and cut it out.

you need 2x the body and 2x the legs, mirrored. and you need 2 buttons.

then you sew the legs onto the bodies

and the buttons onto one side of the head

this is not swedish voodoo, this is the top parts pinned together.

now the sewing is complete
(i recommend stitching together the antlers first, stuffing them, and then stitching the rest. i didnt manage stuffing the antlers this time, because it was so tightly stitched together.

now you put the filling in, using the hole in the stomach

after that, you close it and the moose is finished!

sorry again for this poor version. it can look so much nicer. but you get the idea.
and sorry for my crappy English, too. Undecided

I saw something similar in a shop window and made a picture of it with my cell phone Cheesy

that's the original:

At home, I drew apattern: (2x the body and 2x the legs are needed)

I cut it out adding 5 mm of seam allowance and stitched it together by hand from the outside. The eyes are buttons.

The material is some sort of fleece but you can also use felt.
