I promised you all the pattern for this project ~ you can find it here, sorry it is a bit scribbly and there is no scale on it but i don't think it matters too much ~ remember tho the smaller you make it the more fiddly it is.
~Now how to put it together~
The Joey and the mother are made in basically the same way, start with the Joey because you will need to put it in the pouch and sew it in (to make sure it fits) before you finish the adult.
Start with your two front sections and sew (I blanket stitched) the centre seam from neck to tail - top to bottom.
(this is me sewing in the car while i wait for the big girl to finish her piano lesson)
From the base of the tail, sew along the length and keep going up and round its back ~ remember to leave a decent opening for stuffing.
Come back to where you left off at the neck and sew up the face until you reach halfway round the nose; join in the head panel (point to the back, rounded end to the nose) sew one side then come back and sew around the other - stitch a little way down the back but leave your stuffing opening.
I stuffed some fleece into about the first inch of the tail section to give it a nice full shape then i filled the rest of the tail and the feet with riversand - poke it about a bit with a chopstick or some other long pointy thing to pack it in well. then check it stands...
(notice the change of outfit? now i am sitting in the car waiting for my big girl to finish zumba)when you are happy stuff the legs really firmy with fleece and keep on stuffing not quite so firmly into the belly then really firmly again for the head and neck - don't sew your opening closed just yet.
Said the kind Kangaroo, Oh what shall I do?
If I had a cradle I'd rock it,
But my baby is small, So I think afterall,
I'll carry her round in my pocket.
