Chao Plush Tutorial by VesteNotus Chao Plush Tutorial by VesteNotus
Ever want a Chao of your very own from the Sonic Universe? Well, I did, once. I later went on to make a few customized chaos (unreleased on DA) using this pattern as a base.
After promising this tutorial for about half-a-year, I finally deliver!
My new Chao pattern (unreleased) is a simpler, yet cleaner version of this, so I don't feel bad about distributing this pattern.

The file is a zip complete with 3 sheets containing the pattern pieces, pictures of the step-by-step process, a small "gallery" of plushies created using this pattern (for ideas), and a TXT file explaining each step to correspond with the images.

Terms of Use
:bulletgreen: Anyone is free to use. Please credit me if you can, should you use this pattern.

:bulletgreen: Please do not redistribute for mass production.

:bulletgreen: I would love to see what people have created. If you do make a plushie using this pattern, send me a link!

I hope this is helpful.
Construction Scale of Difficulty:

Chao (c) Sega and the Sonic Universe

There's a great big "download" button near the top of the page - directly below the "favorite" button. I think you just have to save it and then unzip the file to use it.

Not even close to being a troll.

Worked for me too.

Maybe your virus blocker just sucks.
