You really should include some instructions with this.

The lines are not straight at all, there are NO measurements, no instructions. just a few general shapes. I probably could have figured that out on my own. But the dimensions and instructions was more what I was looking for in this. I'm disappointed. I am going to have to figure out how to do all of this myself with just a very basic idea on the shapes. and I spent $5 on this.... :/ Please improve

I apologise, im fairely new to selling patterns, that IS the pattern i used for the plushies pictured, i will add some more instructions, i guess im thinking  from a sewers perspective and i forget that it may not be as straight foreward to others. Thank you for the critique, i will try to improve my lines and instructions. I also intended it to be resized however you want it so thought i didnt need measurements.

The link say's the item is no longer available  :BlueDumboBigEyes: I am looking forward to purchasing a pattern as soon as it is up again. :) The plushie is adorable! And I understand that some nooby sew-ers couldn't figure out the pattern, but I would love to try it out! :thumbsup2:

I still have the pattern, I managed to make the rat, but i couldn't get the legs to stand up right, they just flop to the sides. Oh well. try contacting him on etsy.

I put it back up, i am working on making instructions as some were not very happy with it.  Not sure why your legs splay out, are you using fur? thats mainely what i use and its stiff.

No, I was using fleece I had on hand, that may have been the problem. I wanted to make a prototype before I bought any thing expensive to make them with. Thanks
