DIY White Rat Plush

DIY White Rat Plush

As an asian, I do celebrate Chinese New Year. It’s a big family gathering like people do on Thanksgiving day. The most awaited moment is when married couples give me hóngbāo or red envelope. It’s not an ordinary envelope because it is filled with money HEHE.  phew . . one of the perks being single, am I right? :p

2020 is the year of rat and even though I do not believe in any Chinese zodiac and its superstition, it’s always fun to make something each year related to the assigned animal. So, today I have something very special to share with you, which is a white rat plush. It’s super adorable and fun sewing project to do. 

I got some comments from my previous sewing projects. They said that it’s too difficult for a newbie to learn this kind of sewing project. So, to make you clear, I share this tutorial for you who are familiar with basic sewing skill and encourage you to join me to create something different and adorable. So, I am sorry if it’s not meant for a newbie but if you are a newbie and have a great interest at this, join me to make it!

 Tools and Materials

o    Felts

  • Green

  • Ivory

  • White

  • Black

o    Pins

 o    Scissor

o    Sewing needles

o    Matching thread

o    Toy stuffing

o    Blush (optional)


Download, print and cut the pattern.                 

Trace the pattern on the green and ivory felts and cut it.

For the eyes, I cut the eye from the pattern, trace on the felts (black and white) and cut it.

Glue the eyes and create a smile and blushes on the cheeks using black and pink thread, respectively. For the smile, I used straight stitches while for the blushes I used satin stitches.

If you are done with the face, you can start sewing the head with blanket stitches. Then, leave a space for filling the toy stuffing inside and close the seam.

Sew the body with blanket stitches. Then, if you’re done, sew the body and head together with ladder or invisible stitches. You should do it on the front and back to make sure it is attached well.

Sew the belly and hands with blanket stitches on the body directly.

Lastly, sew the feet on the back of the frog’s body with blanket stitches directly. Aaaand… The frog is done!
