pint-sized, plush Jedi master
This little guy is from a pattern of my own design (my first, actually), and I'm insanely pleased with the way he turned out. He's all hand-sewn, which means he took forever to finish since I'm not particularly adept with needle and thread.
The how-to for Yoda is here! Clothes to follow....

Cut out pattern and cut out pieces. Remember for any part that needs 2 pieces (i.e. the head and feet) to fold the fabric right sides together and cut 2.
With WS together, whip stitch feet, leaving back end open for stuffing.
Stuff feet with scraps of fleece or with polyfil. I used a small knitting needle to stuff the toes.
Pin front pieces together with RS facing. Sew long, straight side together with 1/8" seam (All seams are 1/8").
Pin back pieces together with RS facing. Sew long, straight side together.
Sew fron and back together. With RS facing, pin front and back together on diagonal sides and sew. You should now have a tube.
ATTACH FEET/FINISH BODY:
Basically, the feet are sewn into the body. Line up feet on inside (RS) of body tube and pin in place. Pin bottom to body tube with RS facing (feet will be on the inside) and sew.
Flip body right side out and stuff. Line up front and back of body and whip stitch closed.
Line up the top edge of the back ear with the top edge of the front ear. Pin in place and whip stitch together.
Cut holes in one piece of head and attach safety eyes. Because the eyes are so small, you may need to sew around the holes to reinforce them and to make sure the fabric doesn't fray. Embroider on the nose.
Pin RS of head together with ears at desired position (they'll be on the inside) and sew, leaving an opening for turning. Turn head right side out and stuff. Mattress stitch closed.
ATTACH HEAD TO BODY:
Whip stitch head to body.
MAKE ARMS/FINISH YODA:
With RS of arm facing sew seam starting at armpit to wrist. Flip arm RS out, line up fingers, whip stitch hand closed.
Stuff arm. I used a small knitting needle to stuff the fingers.
Whip stitch arms to body. That's it! Yay! May the force be with you!
