Hello fellow crafters and browsers :D From a few requests I have made a tutorial for my baby alpaca/llama. Please watch the video below and follow whatever instructions I have placed below.
As you can see in the image below I made a very fluffy one that I wanted to use in the tutorial but it was impossible for me to show what I was doing with all the fluff, it's the same as the one in the video though just with a 2.5mm hook and the proper face template.

Stitch everything in the appropriate areas.
Using the face template fold it in half and stitch along where the triangle cutout is. 
Flip it over so the stitched part isn't showing and stitch it onto the head.
Make sure you don't stitch the face flat because to want to stuff it a little so it pertrudes.
Resize the template to about 80% if you're using the 2.5mm hook instead of the 3.5mm.

Stitch on the nose and mouth to your liking and add the eyes.
I use 4mm eyes for the 2.5mm hooked llama and 5mm eyes for the 3.5mm hook llama.
Now you can either add the pompom to the back for a fluffy tail or not, totally optional.
And you are done :D

Feel free to link me some images if you guys end up making this and please be sure to credit me

Happy Crafting ^^
