Sneaking up quietly is the first of a few Minecraft patterns I have been working on, run quick…it’s a creeper!! 

Following the previous success of my Minecraft creeper blanket I have been wanting to make some Minecraft characters but was so busy with my Christmas makes they got put on the back burner. Finally now Christmas (and the ridiculous number of quilts and other gifts) is over I can concentrate on them. The one great thing when making something from Minecraft is everything is square or rectangular – no curved edges, which makes it so much easier to make the pattern and put together.

I thought I would start first with one of the most recognisable characters in Minecraft (and the match the blanket I made) the creeper.

Putting together: 

Sew the leg pieces together with a black piece on the base, the black and green pieces around the sides, stuff then sew onto the tops.

Next sew the head pieces together sewing the base and sides together, stuffing then sewing on the top. Repeat this for the body. Sew the head and body together.

Sew the 4 legs onto the corners of the base of the body.


Sew on the eye and mouth detail in black wool.
