A few notes before we begin:

-When I am creating an amigurumi based on a certain character I like to look at reference pictures of the character I am creating. It really helps when assembling the pieces and making the facial features!

Face

Pusheen's face consists of various shapes that are cut out from black craft felt and a small piece of pink felt for the mouth.
For the eyes, cut out two small circles.
For the Whiskers, cut four thin strips each about 2 inches long with a pointed end.
The mouth is a bit of an irregular shape. It's like small "w" with a "u" shape hanging off the bottom. See the pictures below for reference.

1. Chain 6. Join ends together with a slip stitch to make a ring.
2. INC around (12)

4. 2 SC, INC; repeat around (24)
5. SC (24)

To assemble the donut:
Sew both sides together, the inner part of the ring first then the outer part. Stuff as you go. Use other various colors of yarn (such as blue, yellow, and white) and place random stitches on the pink side of the donut to make the sprinkles.







Assembly



Assembling Pusheen is fairly easy and straightforward.

1. Sew the ears to the head. 

2. Sew the tail to the backside.

3. Sew the feet to the body.

4. Sew the back stripes onto the backside of the body.

5.Sew the head stripes onto the top of the head in between the ears.

6. Glue or needle felt on the face and whiskers.

7. Glue or sew on the donut.

Finished!
