New Members of the LBF Gang


Happy days are here with 2 new members added to the Little Bigfoot Gang,
LBF Kitty and LBF Puppy.

I started designing Little Bigfoots in 2012, but they were much smaller back then.
In 2014 and 2015 I redesigned most of them and made them bigger plus made their heads and bodies all one piece for easier assembly. 
Now in 2017, I'm adding to the series. I've also added the option of them in a sitting position.


The Little Bigfoots are all 9-10 inches tall aside from the giraffe which is 13 inches tall.
You can find these new patterns and the rest of the animals in the series (2014-2017) here.

Little Bigfoot Puppy


New members of the Little Bigfoot gang, Scraps and Scooter.
I made Scraps (the multi-colored puppy) late last night after being inspired by colorful amigurumis being posted on my facebook page. Color is wonderful!
Feel free to play around with this pattern. Make your puppy one solid color, multi-colored, standing or sitting. The choice is yours. Have fun!

I recently released a pattern for a very large puppy here. I also released a miniature puppy here.
Since then I had many requests for something in between those sizes so I came up with the Little Bigfoot Puppy. This one stands about 9 inches tall and can be worked up in a short amount of time.
I have many other LBF animals in this series, see them here. They make great gifts and I've seen them used as mobiles as well.

Please note there is no full video tutorial for the puppy yet but I did include some video links in some steps that you might find helpful for certain parts. Like: how to whip stitch a nose in, how to sew a muzzle on and more.
If you made a multi-colored pup like I did, sewing on the parts is no different than sewing parts on a solid colored amigurumi. Keep the stitches as close as you can to the part you're sewing in and you will not see the stitches. 

ASSEMBLY:

Some people find sewing amigurumis together a bit daunting. I used to as well, I used to dread sewing things together! I enjoy it now. The trick is to relax, don't hold things so tight. Let the yarn needle do all the work.  Use pins to hold things in place, use lots of pins when you can. Always make sure you are happy with the placement of things BEFORE sewing.  Take your time and always take breaks when you need them. Enjoy!

1) Flatten the foot before sewing any parts. Cut 2 yarn tails, about 12 inches long or

Little Bigfoot Kitty


A newest member of the Little Bigfoot gang,  LBF Kitty!
 

The one that stands is about 10 inches tall. It is designed the exact same way all the other LBF animals are designed, in a permanent standing position with a basic stuffed face and yarn eyes.



The sitting ones are about 6 inches when sitting and about 9-10 inches all stretched out. Although the written pattern is the exact same, they have eye indents and cheeks. It may look difficult but it's easy to do. I have included lots of photos and instructions to get you through those parts. There is no video tutorial yet. 



The written pattern below is for both the standing kitty and the sitting kitty.

Making the Eye Indents and Cheeks For LBF Kitty




This page is only for those of you making the eye indents and cheeks on the Little Bigfoot Kitty.
The written pattern for this kitty is here


Step 1) This step is done at the end of row 15. 
Between the 9th and 10th row, pull a strand of yarn through a stitch hole (same color as head), go over one stitch post and back through, so that you have 2 strands on the inside of the head. Knot the strands together. Do the same steps for the 2nd
