Batman FREE Pattern

Well, after a long wait, the Dark Knight is finally here!

I know this took me a while to publish, honestly I got distracted with other projects and life, and Batman’s pattern just sort of disappeared from my mind. Nonetheless, it’s here now, and I hope you’ll enjoy it! You’ll notice it’s a bit different from the original Iron Man pattern, since it was one of my first designs I decided to make some improvements.

Enough small talk, I know what you’re here for so here it goes!

Sew face on the head, aligned with the body.

Sew bat ears on the sides of the head, between rnds 8 and 10.

Sew the smaller edge of the cape to the body on the back.

Cut two pieces of white felt for the eyes and glue them to the head, above the face. (see pictures for reference)

Cut one oval piece of yellow felt, and the bat symbol in black felt. Glue them together and the glue on the body above the belt. (Honestly, cutting the bat symbol is very tricky, I suggest looking at reference images online and do your best)

And that’s it, Batman is ready to watch over you!
