PATTERN FIREMAN FRED PART 6

BRINGING YOUR MELLY TEDDY RAGDOLL TO LIFE

You have made all the different body parts and decoration, now to bring your Melly Teddy to life.

You do not need to follow these instructions exactly, it is just the way I like to put mine together, so is a suggestion only – the idea is to have FUN with the design, use your imagination and make yours unique.

ATTACHING THE ARMS/HANDS

Helpful hint: before you attach the arms etc to the body, lay the body flat making sure that the seam is lying to one side of the body and not at the back – the reason I designed the body like this is so that the seam is not as noticeable as when it is at the back.

Place the body flat, making sure that the increase stitches made are on either side of the body (this makes them less visible), the seam of the sleeve should be at the bottom of the arm, I slip stitch the opening at the top of the sleeve so that it is easier to slip stitch to the body, then attach sleeves to the body between rows 2 and 5 – I slip stitch the front and the back of the arm to make it more stable. 

Then attach the hands, with the thumbs facing upwards (thumbs up 😊) to the open end of the sleeve, and whilst you are attaching the hand, slip stitch the opening closed.

   

ATTACHING BOOTS/ADDING SHOELACES

Slip stitch the boots to the bottom of the legs, and slip stitch the opening of the leg at the same time, slip stitch the opening between the legs, cut yarn, weave in ends.  Using colour G embroider shoelaces – I did mine in little bars, but you can make little crosses – whatever you feel like doing – maybe even add a bit to make a little bow.

ADDING THE NOSE, MOUTH AND EYEBROWS.

Using the same colour as the hair, I make an eyebrow above the eyes, approximately 3 stitches long. I start two rows above the eye.  The eyebrows are about 8 stitches apart from each other. 

Using the same colour yarn as the face, I make a nose over 3 stitches, by going over the area with the yarn 6 to 8 times, pulling very gently – a bit like a satin stitch in embroidery.  The stitches are worked over each other and all in the same space.  I make the nose between the eyes, 1 row below the eyes.

Using some black yarn, I do the exact same stitch for the mouth as I used for the nose, however I make 2 stitches on top of each other, 3 rows below the nose, over 3 stitches.

This is just a suggestion, you can do whatever you like with your fireman– embroider her eyes, use your imagination, he is your unique creation.

ATTACHING THE HELMET TO THE HEAD, ADDING SHIELD, HEART & FD LETTERS

The hair is worked onto the helmet, so I use the yarn from the hair to slip stitch the helmet/hair onto the head, I place the helmet about 4-5 rows above the eyes, you want enough space to add the eyebrows. 

Before attaching the shield I embroidered the number 1 – you can do the same, or embroider a different number or letter, then I attached the shield to the head by slip stitching along the straight sides, leaving the point of the shield to “stick out”.

Then slip stitch the heart to the front of the body.

Then slip stitch the F and the D to the back of the body.

ATTACHING THE HEAD

I like to add the head last, because this is the most important join, and this is the last thing you do before your Melly Teddy Ragdoll comes to life, this is my favourite part.  I use a disappearing ink marker to mark where I want my head to be placed, you can use stitch markers or pins, to help you.  Slip stitch the neck opening, like you did the arms and the feet, then lie your body flat, and make sure that the middle of the head is exactly joined to the middle of the body, otherwise it will look funny, and lie skew.  So, you are working “over” the centre of the end of the head, then slip stitch the body to the head, on both sides, cut yarn and weave in.

Now you have made your beautiful Melly Teddy Ragdoll Mermaid for that someone special, you can print out his/her very own Birth Certificate.
