Moose and Zee--Zee



My cousin was upset when Moose and Zee, one of her son's favorite shows went off the air and tried to petition for its return. While that didn't work, her campaign did inspire me to make this for his birthday present. Here's the pattern for Zee, Moose is coming soon!

Blue, small amounts of white and yellow and even smaller amounts black yarn

Sew to either side of body.

Finishing

Cut eye pupils out of black felt as shown and glue to eyes. Sew dark blue thread above eyes for eyebrows.

For each leg, fold 1 pipe cleaner in half, twisting to hold it together. Insert around stitch on the bottom of body and fold so that one side is longer than the other (the side that has the pointed ends should be the shorter one). Bend the shorter side into an L shape and then fold the pointed tip back so it forms a small loop. Flatten and twist together, if needed. With the longer side, bend so that the end passes the top. Where the other side meets the main part (the part that's stuck to the body), bend the longer side back. Then bend again to the main part. You should have 3 parts sticking out. Twist 3 pieces once. Repeat for second leg.

Note: I apologize if the feet are confusing; if you have any questions, let me know. I'll try to put a picture tutorial as soon as I can.
