this explanation is really tough... cause i have a really slapped together way of sewing so i dont measure anything... mostly just eyeballing and trimming. so all i can really do is give you the general idea.rough pattern
i use a blanket stitch [i think] to put my pieces together, even though some sketches show a running stitch. a sewing machine is fine.. but a little tougher with the smaller pieces [atleast with my machine.] plus i like the hand sewn look.
you'll need. needles. thread. felt. hot glue gun. marker. and whatever you want to stuff with. i used doll stuffing and rice. i stole a couple of the silicate packets that come in pill bottles or new purses and shoes. the pouch with beadlike things in them and say "do not eat" all over it... it prevents the rice from puffing up.
-always cut your pieces atleast a cm larger than you want, for allowance and in case you need to trim a piece.
sew up the extremities. stack 2 arm pieces.... sew up around the edges leaving the flat end open. turn inside out with a popsicle stick or other blunt object. do the same with other arm, ears, and tusks. stuff these now.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/hellaskeleton/arms.jpg
for the nostrils just fold in half and sew on one edge.
next i'd go with the body. first by sewing the bottom to the sides, back, and chest. then sew the edge of the back to the edge of the side. the edge of the side to the chest. the chest to the other side. and the other side to the final edge of the back.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/hellaskeleton/x.jpg
you should end up with a cup shape with two holes in the bottom where the legs should be. first sew the a footpad into each of the smaller curve of the leg pieces.
sewing the legs on will take a lot of patience and a poke in the finger or two. i'd start by sewing the leg onto the side and chest pieces. then so off the bottom.
cut slits into the sides where you want your arms to be. you want these to me slightly smaller then the open end of your arm piece. now. since you're going to be turning the body inside out still you need to insert the arm into the slit with the CLOSED tip first. then sew edges together.
The head is where most of the estimating and frustration takes place. so make sure you have the time and patience for this. be sure to check that your pieces are right side out before sewing by turning inside out from time to time.
place a mark on the cheek pieces where you want to place your ears and tusks.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/hellaskeleton/xx.jpg
from star to circle should be how long the forehead piece is. width depends on how thick you want it's head to be and how wide the top of the back is. you can taper it to make it more bulby on the snout.
sew together the edge of the forehead piece a cheek piece up to the point where you want your ear to be.
insert ear just like how you did the arms [closed end first] and with the lighter side towards the snout. treat ear like a third piece of felt and sew through edges all together [unlike the arm.] continue sewing edges until an inch from the edge. insert nostril piece and finish sewing. repeat with other cheek piece.
the snout/mouth piece should be about the length of circle to heart [refer to above image.]
connect forehead to flat end of "front'o'snout" piece. sew edges to cheek pieces and stop where your tusks are going to be. sew in tusks like arms. finish piece.
turn head and body inside out and shape if needed. cut out and draw eyes on white felt. stick onto the side of the head with a glue gun. you can just stitch them on, but i like how it looks without any stitching.
fill with rice and some stuffing.. but not a lot. just enough so it gets it's general shape.
now sew the head to the body. i use a basting stitch for this. make sure that your stitches are short or else you'll get a ripple sort of effect. don't close. leave a big enough hole to finish stuffing. use a popsicle stick or whatever you have to jab stuffing into place. finish sewing.
and you're done! easy as pie
. i know it's confusing. ask questions.. i'll help the best way i can.
