This plushie can be made with or without a hanger. If you add a ribbon loop to the tope, you will have an Oogie Boogie ornament to use on your Halloween or Christmas tree.
Oogie Boogie Plushie Felt Craft
- Oogie Boogie Plush Ornament Pattern
- Craft felt (Lime green and black)
- Ribbon for hanging
- Black Embroidery floss
- Poly-fil Stuffing
Print out the Oogie Boogie pattern. Cut out the individual pieces. Use these patterns to trace on the felt and cut out the pieces.
Sew the mouth and eyes pattern pieces on the face of one of the Oogie Boogie body pattern pieces.
Sew on Oogie Boogie’s eyebrows and scar by using black embroidery floss. Do this with just some simple stitches, nothing fancy. Only sew the face on one body piece.
Start to sew the two body pieces together. Lay the two pieces on top of each other, keeping the face on the outside and showing. If you need, you can use pins to keep the pieces together.
Use whatever stitch you would like, but I used a blanket stitch.
I suggest starting to sew around the neck and then continue up towards the head.
Before sewing the head pieces together, loop your ribbon and insert the cut edges between the two head pieces. I usually leave about 1/4 inch or more of ribbon inside the pattern pieces just to make sure the ribbon doesn’t fray and come out. This creates the ornament hanger.
Be sure to sew a few stitches over the felt and ribbon to secure the hanger and keep it from slipping. Continue sewing around the pattern.
Once you have sewn most of the body together, add some stuffing inside.
Continue sewing around the pattern and adding stuffing when you can. I suggest using a pencil or corner turner to stuff the Poly-fill into the small spaces such as the arms and top of his head.
When you get to where you started, finish off the stitching and tie a knot.
