a cute little whale friend
my best friend's favorite animal is the whale and i decided to make her this polka dotted whale for her birthday.
its really easy to make any simple animal stuffie. :D
choose the fabric you wish to use for your animal of choice.
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
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.
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.
turn it inside out through the hole you conveniently left.
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
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.
hope my how-to was ohkay to understand. its my first.
