Free Pattern Friday! Alpaca Plush

Hi everyone!
Another highly requested pattern today 😀 I’ve gotten so many suggestions for an alpaca, so I’m very glad I finally got to tackle it. I knew I wanted it to have the classic fuzzy face with a cute muzzle and be able to stand on four legs without too much fuss. So the shapes are pretty basic but I think using a fluffy fabric really helps sell it.
You can make it with perky ears or down-turned ears for a sweeter look. The standing version has the legs sewn on by hand, so that takes a little time. But the one with flat legs has them sewn in seam so it’s much faster. I still rated it a 3/10 because the shapes are simple, but if you’re not familiar with using faux for it might seem a little harder. In case you’re curious, the faux fur I used for this is Shannon Cuddle Sherpa (blush), and Shannon Cuddle Galaxy (plum). They were a lot of fun to work with 😀

The original pattern comes with applique templates, but there are embroidery files as well 😀 The eyes are stitched with little applique bases and the muzzles are included as well. Everything fits on 4” x 4” hoops so no one is left out! I hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed designing it!
