How to Sew a Felt Frankenstein Plushie
- Colored Felt Fabrics
- Threads to Match the Felts
- Cotton Fill, such as Polyfill
- Sharpie or gel pen
- Free Frankenstein Plush Pattern
Print out the Frankenstein pattern and cut out the pattern pieces.
Trace the pattern pieces on the felts that match what you are making. The templates include:
- Frankenstein body base (Orange)
- Head (Green)
- Hair (Black)
- Ears (Green)
- Bolts (Grey)
- Pants (Grey)
- Shirt (Purple)
- Jacket (Brown)
- Shoes (Black)
- Arms (Green)
On the head cutout, use a Sharpie or a pen to trace the eyes, nose, and mouth-lines of the felt Frankenstein pattern.
Using black thread, stitch along the traced eyes, nose and mouth-line with small stitches.
Put the shoe cutouts on the bottom part of the base cutout and stitch together with black thread.
Place the jacket pattern piece on the table. Lay the pants piece on top, towards the bottom. Then put the shirt pattern piece in the middle above the pants.
Stitch around the pattern pieces to keep them together.
Lay the pieces on top of the Frankenstein body base. Then stitch together the jacket piece to the body cut out.
You will stitch around the base of the jacket pattern piece and on the sides. Keep the top of the pattern open for now.
Put the hair cutout on top of the head pattern.
Now, place the ear and bolt cutouts on both sides of the head on the base. Have the ears and bolts mostly hanging over the sides of the head, but leave enough overlapping on the base to stitch through.
Place the head pattern on the head part of the base. Be sure that the ear and bolt cutouts don’t move between the head and base layers. You might want to use a pin to keep them in place.
Now sew around the head along the sides and the top of the head. Keep the bottom of the head pattern open for now.
Be sure to stitch through all layers, including the hair, the ears and the bolts.
Use a little bit of cotton or Polyfill to stuff the felt Frankenstein plush. Stick some cotton in the head and in the body.
You can use a pencil or chopstick to gently push the stuffing into the tiny corners and spaces of the plushie.
Overlap the bottom side of the head on top of the jacket. Close the openings together by stitching the overlapped parts.
Stitch the arm cutouts on both sides of the base, in the back.
