Plushie, sock animal, felt

I meant to sew rabbits for my new little nephew, but when I had made the ears, it could not be anything but 3 little Totoros. They are really simple to make. And they have little butts :p
I added a how to - hope it is understandable.

Instructions

  1. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 1 1

    First, turn your sock inside out and flatten it out with the heel facing downwards.
    If forgot to turn it, so the sock I am demonstrating has the wrong side out.

  2. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 2 2

    Draw the shape of the ears on the top. This is a 25 cm long sock, and the ears I drew are 6 cm long.

    Sew along the line and cut away the middle part.

  4. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 4 4

    Time to stuff your Totoro. I used the filling of an old pillow. It is easy to shape.

  5. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 5 5

    Stuff it til it is semi-hard and shape-able. Leave some fabric in the bottom.

    Cut that part of and save it. Spare a little for seamallowance.

    Start sewing from inside the folded part. Insert the needle in all the little wrinkles in the fabric.

    The tail is made from the spare piece of sock you cut off earlier.

  11. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 11 11

    Sew around it, but leave the end open. Stuff the tail and close it.

  12. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 12 12

    Attach it to the back of the Totoro. Some how one of the sides looks more like a back than the others. If not, it can be shaped.

  13. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 13 13

    Cut out eyes, nose, and belly in black and white felt. I just handdrew the pieces. If making the smallest Totoro, you only need to make eyes.

    Glue the felt on. If it is for smaller children, you might want to sew it on.

    I shaped the ears of the largest Totoro, with thread through the bottom of it's ears.

  16. How to make a bear plushie / teddy bear. Totoro - Step 16 16

    Make sure you sew it tightly enough, so the thread is not visible.
