Hoodie to Hippo

You see a lot of "sock animals" and I thought,
"Why not something bigger, like a hoodie?" 
So meet "Hoodie the Hippo!"

So here is how I made him:

    1. Sorry, this was one of my older projects, so I didn't really explain it very well.

      For the head, I photoshoped the white lines to show how I ended up cutting the pattern pieces. I brought it in more, so that the face would have more definition. Basically, cut out four peanut shapes & sew the edges of each "peanut shape" together, Then you will add the muzzle piece to the front of the peanut pieces and sew it all the way around.

      Hope that helps! <3

    2. Are the peanuts the pieces from the sleeves or are they new extra pieces? Also for under the body did you add some fabric between the extremities of the hood (like in the Nessie project) or did you directly sewed in the extremities of the hood? Sorry I'm a beginner so I get confused very easily. Thank you so much for the fast reply.

    3. Yes, they are from the sleeves, and yes, after attaching the legs, I just sewed the open edges of the hood together to make the belly, but you can always do your own thing!
