A Sheepie Backpack

This is a huge version of a plushie from Aranzi Aronzo's Cute Book. Except the arms were modified, and he's really big, and there's a zipper that has half-decapitated him.

He is a plushie backpack that I must send in a swap, but really don't want to. One look into his crazy little eyes, and I was smitten. Le sigh. Anywayz, sorry about the blurry zipper-shot, but it actually didn't turn out so bad. Usually I am a disaster with zippers, but this time, not so much. Yay!

Oh, and sorry about the crap Paint pictures, but I didn't photograph Bartleby until he was done.



Instructions

  • How to make a backpack. Bartleby - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out all the pieces of your plushie of choice. I have Bartleby, the lovely sheepie.

  • How to make a backpack. Bartleby - Step 2
    Step 2

    Sew all the pieces together as they would be sewed if this were a real plushie, except for the head. And don't stuff the body. Arms, legs, head(s), fine. But not the body. That is where your stuff will go. Sew the lining to itself, as well.

  • How to make a backpack. Bartleby - Step 3
    Step 3

    Shove the lining into Bartleby, then put the zipper into place. It should be between Bartleby's skin and his lining. Sew it in, along each side. Turn under the fabric as you go along.

  • How to make a backpack. Bartleby - Step 4
    Step 4

    Sew on Bartleby's head, his horns, and some straps. I made mine of some wide satin ribbon. Black, natch.
