  • Step 1

    choose the fabric you wish to use for your animal of choice.

  • Step 2

    draw a basic outline of the shape of the animal or whatever you chose. or, look up a picture of it and get a better idea of the shape. you can also trace the shape onto your fabric from your computer screen

  • Step 3

    when you think the shape is good. (draw it a little larger than you think it should be because smaller places may get all yucky.

  • Step 4

    sew it up along the line our drew. make sure you have two pieces of fabric you are sewing (duh) with the good sides facing in. remember to leave a hole so that you can turn it inside out and add stuffing.

  • Step 5

    turn it inside out through the hole you conveniently left.

  • Step 6

    stuff with toy stuffing. or scraps as i sometimes do. my whale is stuffed with felt scraps and normal stuffing. when they are mixed together it looks like colorful guts. :D

  • Step 7

    sew up the hole you used for filling and add fancy stuff. i put two buttons for eyes but there is a ton of stuff you can add to make your stuffie look awesome. get creative.

  • Step 8

    hope my how-to was ohkay to understand. its my first.
