I'm nearing 40,000 pageviews and thought it was about time I gave away another freebie. I've added my Adventure Time Jake the Dog plush to the "Patterns and Downloads" page. There aren't any instructions included with the .pdf, just the pattern pieces, but you can probably figure it out pretty easy.

When you print the pattern I recommend setting it to 100%, not "fit to page." The pieces should fit together like a puzzle and tape the pages together before cutting out the pieces. I also recommend opening it in Adobe Reader and not GoogleDocs.
Make sure you add the amount of seam allowance that you feel comfortable with. I usually add about 1/4" to 3/8". Sew the tail first, then insert it into one of the darts in the body (this will become the back), sew the rest of the darts. Then sew the arms and legs, turn and stuff. Then pin them inside the body in the orientation you want (look at my pics to get an idea) sew the body closed, right sides together, except for a small hole, turn and stuff. Sew the hole closed. Sew the ears, jowls, and nose, turn and stitch closed (no stuffing). Cut the eyes and mouth. Then sew on the face. I sew it all by machine except for the closing and adding the face/ears.
I would love to see your creations! The Jake pictured above is made by one of the followers of this blog, isn't he super cute!
