Seamus The Leprechaun Plushie
"Seamus isn’t your typical leprechaun. Although leprechauns are known for being mischievous and stirring up harmless trouble, Seamus never had an interest in playing pranks and getting into the things the other leprechauns did. Instead, he loved spending hours in his dad’s workshop, learning how to make the best shoes, especially shoes for exploring the forests around his home. As he’s gotten older though, and become a father, Seamus spends most of his time chasing after his own boys and keeping them out of trouble! This crochet plushie pattern has a lot of pieces, but they are all made with simple stitches like single crochets and half double crochets. As always, I wanted the outfit for this plushie to be removable and changeable, so although there are more pieces to Seamus, it was worth making them! I made Seamus his leprechaun hat and pot of gold of course, but I also make him a waistcoat and a jacket. Because he is a respectable figure, after all!"
