Hey all my crafty friends are you ready for part one of the pacman plushie sew along? Awsome!
So to make both patterns you will need:
-two pieces of paper
-bowls and plates to trace
First trace a circle the size you want the pacman to be and cut it out.
Now fold it in half then unfold and drwa a line on that fold. Repeat with the other side so it is divided into quarters.
Now cut out one quarter.
Draw an eye on one side then flip it over and if you put it up to a window you should see the eye that you drew on the first side and trace that.
Now to make the mouth you need to measure that side of the mouth that you cut (mine measured three inches).
Now times that by four and using that measurement find a circle that has a circumference of that measurement. Trace that circle and cut it out. If you want you can fold it into a quarter and measure the curve to make sure it is the right size.
To make the ghost pattern you need to decide on how big you want it to be. I made mine 5 1/2"-8 1/2".
Round the top using a bowl or plate.
For the bottom separate it into thirds and curve each part.
For the eyes I cut out ovals and traced them onto the pattern. Let me show you a trick I use to make perfect ovals. First fold it in half the in half the other other way.
Then trace a quarter of an oval around the folded corner, cut it out and you have a perfect oval.
Now trace it onto the pattern. Make onther smaller one and trace hat facing to the side.
Now to make the side measure the top curve and write that down. Measure one side and times that by two and write it down. Measure each bottom curve, add the three curve measurements together and write that down. Now add all three together, the top curve, the side and the bottom curves together. add an inch and write that down. Mine measured 28". Now how wide do you want the side? I made mine 3". So my side piece measured 28"-3". If you don't understand exactly how it is done We are gonna do it like this.
You are done.
Tomorrow is sewing the pacman plushie.
