Free Crochet Leela Futurama Pattern

So, I don't know if I mentioned this earlier, but along with my Brobee doll, all of my Futurama dolls were also pulled from Etsy for copyright infringement.  So, since I have these great patterns already made up, I decided I would go ahead and post the patterns for free.   I really love these dolls.  I already had the Leela pattern all done up for someone who wanted to buy the pattern, so it's coming up first.  I'll post Nibbler and Zoidberg as soon as I find the time to write up the patterns.  Please let me know if you use these, and post pictures of the finished results!  I love seeing these dolls come to life!

  2. Hi, I just found your pattern. So awesome! I'm confused about the bottom part of the body though. If I start with the chain of 30 then the bottom is left open. Do you end up sewing that together somehow? Thanks!

  3. Hi! Thanks! You're right. I left out the detail. You can just stitch it closed with a yarn needle. :)
