BT21 Van Plush ♥ 12 Days of DIY

BT21 Van Plush
On the eleventh day of 12 Days of DIY, I crocheted for you, a Van plushie! If you are a BTS fan then you have probably heard of the LINE FRIENDS X BTS collaboration, BT21. Each member of BTS created their own character TATA (V), RJ (Jin), CHIMMY (Jimin), COOKY (Jungkook), SHOOKY(Suga), MANG (J-Hope), KOYA (RM), and VAN. You can watch the whole process of them creating their characters here. Van was the only character not created by the members of BTS but the LINE staff thought it would be nice to include the fans in this project thus Van was born!

BT21 are currently being sold in pop-up shops in Seoul and New York. As much as I would like to buy some BT21 merch looking at how popular BTS is at the moment I doubt I will be able to get anything anytime soon so I decided to make my own! I choose to crochet Van first but I might go back and crochet every character because they're all so cute! Let me know if you would like me to make the rest.

Assembly
Sew the body closed. The body will look like a square but after sewing the legs and arms it will become more round. Next, lightly stuff the legs and sew each the grey leg to the grey side and the white leg to the white side. You will be sewing the legs starting from the edge to the middle. Van has a thigh gap so leave some space between the legs.

Next, the arms. Lightly stuff the arms and sew each piece to its correct spot. Sew down the arms starting from the top of the body. Repeat on the other side.

Finally, securely sew the head on top of the body. Make sure to align the head with the body properly.

BT21 Van Plush
Cut out Van's face using black felt. Cut out a thin line, a circle, and two smaller lines to make an 'x' shape. Use no-sew glue to attach Van's face.
