Notes:
– I always do my crochet works using continuous rounds. I will let you
know when you have to join rounds;
– Everytime I will do a crochet work, the first thing I do is take a look in the
entirely pattern before start doing it, so, I can have an idea of how the
pattern works. Well, I recommend you to do the same;
– For sewing the pieces together you will use the tapestry needle;
Recently, I’m having a hard time to answer all the questions sent to my
email and the comments. I’m sorry that I’m not able to answer your doubts.
However, if you have any doubt, I’m sure that it is worth to leave a
comment here, because even if I can’t answer you, I’m sure that someone
in the community will try to help you out ^^

Assembly
1. Make his body. Sew all the squares together, except the top, put the
foam inside and sew the top square as explained before;
2. Sew the “Grey edge on the top of his body”:
3. Sew the “Grey corners in “y” shape from the bottom”:
4. Sew the “Grey corners from his back on the top”:
5. Using grey felt make two pieces like the one in this photo (they are
placed each one in each side) and glue them to his body:
6. Using grey felt make the front ractangle and glue it to his body:
7. Put some fiberfill inside and glue the “Grey piece where his arms are
attached” in the same place as shown in the photo:
8. Now, before sewing his arms, it’s necessary to insert a wire inside his
body to keep his arms in place. To be able to insert the wire inside the cube
I had to pierce with a sharp needle and then enlarge the small hole with a
larger needle. After that I was able to insert the piece of wire:
Pierce the cube with a sharp needle
Enlarge the small hole with a larger needle
Insert the wire.
Bend the wire near his body and insert his arm through it.
9. To make his fingers sew two pieces together:
Then, cut two pieces of wire (they need to be bigger than the fingers) and
bend it to make it double.
After that insert the wire inside his fingers
Finally, insert the wire inside his arm and sew his fingers:
10. Using a piece of white felt and black fabric paint make this detail of his
arms:
11. To make his legs first cut two pieces of a thick wire in the size of his
legs and bend it in this shape (get an idea with the photos of the complete
wall-e):
unite the loose tips with adesive tape
Sew two pieces of his leg with the wire inside:
12. Cut a piece of wire and try to shape it like in the photo bellow. This is
going to be his neck.
First, insert the already shaped wire into his neck:
Then, insert the wire into his body:
After that, sew his neck to his body:
13. Now you are going to sew the “Grey cylinder between the eyes” to the
top of his neck:
14. To make his eyes I used EVA. I cut two pieces each one for each eye:
Then, I cut two pieces of grey felt and glued into the eva.
Finally, I painted his pupils and iris:
After that, you are going to insert his eva eyes inside the “Front part” of his
eyes and glue them together:
Finally, sew his eyes to the “Grey cylinder between the eyes”:
Now, stuff each “Tube” with fiberfill and glue it to the back of each eye.
Don’t forget to make the reflection in his eyes:
15. Make the details in his front painel using felt and fabric paint and
embroider his name:
