Preview of Plex

Crocheted plex head

Update 2018: While I still have the pieces of Plex, my dogs ate the papers with my notes. I don’t know if I will ever finish him. 

Once again I have gone overboard with the size. Here’s Plex’s head. It’s 10″ tall and 13″ wide. I have no idea how big this thing is going to end up being.

Pattern will be posted as soon as I am done.

Foofa Pattern

Crocheted plush foofa large

Here is likely my last Yo Gabba Gabba pattern. I tried Plex, but my Chihuahuas ate my notes and I doubt I will start over again.

Muno and Brobee are available.

Reminder, these suckers are enormous. Foofa is approximately 3 feet tall. She takes a lot of yarn.

If you make her, let me know either via email or #drunkenauntwendy.

Assembly

 

Pin face and horns in place before attaching to ensure proper placement. I like to sew the pupils on to the eyes before I sew the eyes onto the body.

This is easier if the head is stuffed.

Stuff Body, Sew legs to bottom feet facing forward. The unused leg stitches with form a center seam. Sew up the seam between the legs.

Stuff the arms up to the bottom of the last hunter green band. Fold open edges together and sew to the sides of the body two rows down from beginning of top hunter green band

Have fun, take him everywhere because he is huge.
