Between the people who own cute rats as pets and those noticing that the year after next is the Chinese Year of the Rat, I was getting a lot of suggestions for a rat plush! I thought it might be fun to share it during October so I could do both a sweet version and a scary version like the Owl plush from last year.
So these sweet little rat babies have both a cute face to choose from and a creepy face – complete with bitten ear and eye scar! I’m sure one of them is bound to get you excited to sew <3
They don’t have a lot of pieces, so they come together rather quickly. The neck is a little tricky so I’ve rated it a 3/10, but it might feel more like a 2 to some.
You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces only need a 4” x 4” hoop, so no one is left out! <3 I hope you all like it!
And if you’d like to buy the fabric already pre-printed and ready to sew, 4 different designs are available on my Spoonflower page! No embroidery or applique (or even fabric hunting for that matter) needed <3. The group is modeled after Halloween candy! So there’s candy corn, caramel apple, pumpkin, and chocolate (with bat sprinkles ♥)!
