PATTERN – TOM TURKEY RAGDOLL PART 6
BRINGING YOUR MELLY TEDDY RAGDOLL TO LIFE
You have made all the different body parts and motifs, now to bring your Melly Teddy to life.
You do not need to follow these instructions exactly, this 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 WINGS
Place the body flat, making sure that the increase stitches are on either side, then slip stitch the wing to the body between rows 6 and 14 – I slip stitch around the edge of the 5 leaving row 6 and 7 (to give the feel of wing feathers).
ATTACHING THE FEET
Attach the leg to the back of the foot over rows 12 – 18 carefully stitching in a “circle”, then lightly stuff the leg part of the foot, slip stitch the opening closed and then slip stitch it to the bottom of the body.
ATTACHING TAIL FEATHERS
Slip stitch the gap between the middle of the legs, and weave in ends. Carefully slip stitch the tail feathers to the back of the body. I placed the “crescent shape” of the feathers over rows 11 – 13, which means that the top of the feathers falls over row 6 and the bottom of the feathers fall over row 20, I leave the ends of the feathers unattached to give the feel of feathers.
ATTACHING THE HEART
Slip stitch the heart onto the top of the body on your right, at a slight angle over rows 4 and 5.
ATTACHING THE BEAK AND SNOOD
Lightly stuff the beak and attach it to the middle of the head over rows 19 – 26 using slip stitch.
Then add a little bit of stuffing to the bottom of the snood and attach it to the top of the beak, letting it fall to one side.
ATTACHING THE EYES
Slip stitch the black (smaller) circle onto the white (larger) circle, placing the smaller circle at the edge of the larger circle (this creates the big baby eyes 😊), then add two white flecks on the black (smaller) circle (gives the eyes life), and then slip stitch the larger circle to the head over rows 15 – 22, approximately 6 stitches apart,
ADDING HEAD FEATHERS
This is optional but does look cute. I cut a few pieces of colour (F) yarn approximately 8 cm (3 inches) long, take two and fold in half and then thread through one stitch at the top of the head (like you would add a tassel to a scarf), I did this 3 times.
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 closed and 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 for that someone special, you can print out his/her very own unique Birth Certificate.
