GIR Pattern

Happy free pattern Friday my friends! Since we did GIR in his dogsuit not too long ago, I thought it would only be fitting if we made GIR without his dog costume!

This plushie is a bit bigger than the GIR in Dogsuit plush than we made previously, but that just means there's more to cuddle! This pattern is made with a lot of smaller pieces that make complex shapes, so it does require quite a bit of pinning and patience, but I think the end result is totally worth it!

So, without further ado, let's grab our yarn and our hooks and jump into this week's very fun pattern!

Now it's time for assembly! First, attach antennae to to of head, then add the eyes. Attach the head to the body, sewing through the front loops of the last row of both pieces, while you're sewing these pieces together, you'll want to stuff the neck firmly or GIR's head will be very floppy. After that, assemble the arms and attach them to the sides of the body. Add the legs to the bottom of the body; you could do sitting or standing, I obviously chose for him to be sitting, but standing is also super cute. Lastly attach the stomach patch to the middle of the body.



After all that assembly, just go ahead and embroider on a mouth and you are all finished!


Now you have your very own robot to help you conquer the Earth and hopefully impress the Tall Ones! Watch out though, Dib may very well be lurking around to try and foil your plans!
