Koala Pattern

15 Feb

This pattern is a direct copy from my other blog. The penguin pattern I didn’t put directions to on my other blog, so I re-wrote it entirely, but this one is just copied (I want to add one thing, though. Go Sven Kramer! Congrats on gold for the Dutch!):

1st off: congrats, Alexandre Bilodeau for winning gold on Moguls! Gold for the Canadians!!!

2nd:My (sorta) friend asked me to make a koala for her (and 5 others, whose pictures I will post later, perhaps with pattern if I can’t find one that already exists). Here he is! I think he’s ultra cute. As soon as he was finished, he was dubbed “Frederic” by my little sister, and so “Frederic the Koala” he is. I had a lot of trouble finding a pattern for this little guy, so eventually I made my own. If you want your own little Frederic, make the pattern I’ll post here!

Putting it all together:

Sew arms to the sides, and feet to the front-side, using picture as reference if needed. Sew on the ears:spread the inside edge of the ear, run along inside once fastening in all extraneous yarn from yarn changes and starting. Pin in place (bobby pins are my favorite for this), and sew in place. Use white (to tie in the ears to the rest of the koala), dark brown, and optionally black for the face. Have fun with this part! Weave in all ends and you have your very own koala!
