How To Make A Softie

Tags



Instructions

  • Step 1

    Draw your pattern. As you can see on my pattern, you don't really need to be a good drawer for this!

  • Step 2

    Cut out your pattern. If you want your softie to be symetric, you might want to only draw one half, then fold your paper in half and cut both halves at the same time.

    Step 3

    Place 2 pieces of fabric on top of each other, pin the pattern on it, and cut around the pattern.

    It's time to give your softie a face. Add a mouth with embroidery thread...

    and buttons for eyes...

    Some people prefer doing this after they put the whole thing together, but I prefer doing it first, do I don't need to worry about where to leave spare threads, they can just stay on the back, as they'll end up inside anyway.

    Step 8

    When you finished adding the face and decoration, it's time to sew the back and front together. Place them on top of each other (with the insides facing each other), and use a blanket stitch. Take a long thread, at least 2.5 times as long as the complete outline of your softie. Make sure you don't stitch it up completely yet, you'll need a hole to add the stuffing! If you don't know how to do a blanket stitch, don't worry, I'll make a tutorial for this in the near future!

    Step 9

    We're almost done! All we need to do now is add stuffing! Start with the little parts, like the ears, arms and legs. Use something small (like your little finger, the back of a spoon, a pen, anything like that) to get into the small spots.

  • Step 10

    Sew up the gap!
