"It seems Keaton, the ghost fox, plays tricks in the grass..."
LOZ: Majora's Mask is one of my favourite games in the Zelda series, I remember when I found Keaton I was in awe. I thought it was the prettiest character I had ever seen and I just liked to be around it.
After all these years I finally decided to make one out of felt.

**Download my pattern from above**
Print this out onto paper; you can make it bigger or smaller if you like.
Cut out pattern pieces.
Fold yellow felt in half, this will save time by letting you cut out two pieces at once. Using your pins, attach the body, head and neck to yellow felt, cut around the pattern.
When cutting out the tails, fold the yellow felt in half and place the part of the pattern that says ‘fold’ against the fold line. Cut out 3 tails.
After you’re done sewing you need to turn Keaton inside out so all of your sewing is hidden and it has a nice smooth finish.
Use your thumb to start turning it inside out, then use something long with a blunt end (I’m using a knitting needle) to get into the little areas like ears and legs. Also use the needle to push stuffing into these small areas too.
Stuff Keatons head with pollyfill or other soft filling. Only stuff the head for now.
Thread the Black DMC cotton through the big needle and tie a knot at the end.
We need to be able to reach the face with the needle; this is why we are not stuffing the whole thing yet.
Push the needle through the back opening towards the head and pull the needle through the face where you want the eyes to be.
I wanted my eyes to curve so I put a little knot in the middle of them so they didn’t just go straight when I pulled the DMC tight. I also sewed another layer of DMC at the bottom half to help disguise the knot and give it more of an eye.
Fold tails in half, sew them up (leaving bottom open) and turn them inside out.
Once again water down some white acrylic paint and dab it around the top of the tails.
Let the paint dry and then paint black acrylic at the tips of the tails, make it streaky so it looks more like ‘fur’.
Let paint dry then stuff and sew up the bottoms.
Sew tails together and then sew them into the opening at the back.
In order to make Keaton sit you need to squeeze him together into a sitting position and then sew around the bottom so he stays like that.
To finish him up you need to sew tails closer to body with a few stitches and then sew front legs together
