I wanted to make a Gir plush, once I found the fabric I went to town lol.  I made my own pattern.
I also made a little yeti for my sisters birthday (and that fabric + black pants.... not so great, I'm still trying to get it off lol).



Oh yeah, his feet wiggle xD

LOVE IT!!!!! That seriously looks better than the Gir dolls I've seen in stores. Is the zipper just embroidered on?

Thanks!  That's why I wanted to make my own, and since I already had a lot of the stuff I needed it didn't cost me as much  Grin
I just took some felt, drew on it so knew where to sew the lines and then sewed it on by hand.  I thought about using a real zipper, but I didn't think that would be so great to snuggle.

Lol yeah, might get kinda scratchy with a real zipper. Oh and how did you make the eyes all bulgey like that?.......If you haven't guessed you've totally inspired me to make one myself.

YAY!!  I made the eyes as separate pieces so I could stuff them with fiber fill.  4 big circles and 2 little ones for the middles.

So for each eye you just so two big circles together and stuff it and then sew the whole eye on to the head? That sounds easy enough. That's actually a really cool idea because I'm sure there's tons of other plushies that would look cute with big eyes like that or cheeks all puffed out.

Thanks again for all the tips! I'm in the middle of a few swaps right now so I know its going to be a while before I get around to making a Gir but I seriously can't wait. For now I can be on the lookout for the perfect fabric, definatley needs to be something soft and snuggly because I mean how can you not cuddle up with that cute face all the time?

Yep that's all you do!  I actually didn't think about making cheeks that way but I think it could work, I'll have to remember that.

You're welcome! Smiley When ever you get around to it I'd love to see it.  I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby, which was actually a surprise since most of the time they never have what I want lol.

Lol, I know what you mean, I love hobby lobby but they are kinda lacking in the cute fabric department. But I was there yesterday and they got in their fall fabric collection and I don't know why its considered fall but they have this gorgeous purple satin leopardprint and the leopard print is all velvety, I've been racking my brain trying to find an occasion where wearing a dress made out of it would be appropriate lol.

Did you just use broadcloth? Cuz that's the only thing at hobby lobby I can think of that's bright green. I was thinking of maybe making him out of something soft and fuzzy, maybe a felt or fleece, but not the really fuzzy kind, like the stuff you make recieving blankets out of. I dunno I guess it's just going to depend on what I can find in the right color.

And I will definately share pics when I get around to making him.
