  • How to make a Sackboy plushie. Sackperson With Moveable Arms And Legs - Step 1
    Step 1

    click on picture then right click and save, print A4

    Cut out pattern, the outside line is for machine sewing, the inside is for hand sewing.

    My sackperson is sewn by hand because I like the stiched seam look when it is turned inside out.

    Head
    Start with the Head and Head Side seams together. Stitch over and over using 2 strands of DMC thread about 4 millimeter from the edge.

    Once the Head (front, back, and two sides) is together, trim the top so that it is even.

    Match the Head Top where marked "side" to the sides on the head, then stitch the top on all the way around.

    Turn the head the right way out.

    Body
    Mark the top of each Body piece so they aren't stitched in upside down.
    Place two together and starting at the bottom stitch to the top. don't worry if they dont match fully at the top or are a bit messy this will be covered by the head.
    On the last body side stitch to 2cm from the top and knot off then turn the body the right way and stuff and close up.

    I stuffed mine firm but you can do it anyway you want. You can also add beads to give some weight.

    Arms
    Fold the Arm piece down the middle. Stitch from the bottom to the top.

    Hand
    Remember you need one right and one left hand

    Stitch round the Hand, turn it the right way out, and stuff.

    For fingers
    Knot the cotton, and while putting the needle through from the inside of the hand, add a top stitching for the thumb and fingers.

    Partly stuff Arm.

    (Picture has the Hand round the wrong way)
    Place hand in the bottom of Arm. The Arm seam will be beside the little finger.

    Assembly
    Place the arm on the body with thumbs facing the front. Pin in pace.
    The buttons need to cover 90% of the arm.
    I stitch my buttons in place first just enough to hold them,

    Use a Doll making needle or the longest one you have with a double thread of heavy duty cotton. I used Quilting cotton.
    Start in one hole and push the needle through to the button in the other arm. Cross over and go back again do this untill you are happy the will stay on and knot off under one of the arms.

    Place legs on the body with seams at the back of the legs, pin in place and repeat the same process as the arms.
