This kids plushies tutorial will show you how fun and easy it is to make stuffed animal crafts with kids. This is a sponsored post.
One of the best things about having my kids home is having lots of time to craft with them! A few years ago my daughter made a cute little duck plush animal, and she has been very eager to make another one. Fortunately, the fabric dies from Crafter’s Edge make it easy to create plush toys! No more printing, tracing, and cutting patterns. These fabric dies come with all the pieces needed to make an adorable little plush critter. Here’s how we did it.
Supplies Used for this Kids Plushies Tutorial
- Crafter’s Edge Fabric Cutting Dies: Funny Bunny and Patch the Monster
- Die cutting machine
- Felt in various colors
- Fabric Glue
- Needle and thread
- Poly-Fil Fiberfill
The dies come with all the pieces needed to make each character, including the eyes and other details. The Funny Bunny Tooth Pouch can be used in two ways: as a cute bunny or to craft a tooth pouch for the tooth fairy!
The fabric dies from Crafter’s Edge cut felt perfectly! I used my Crossover 2 to cut the large pieces first.
Then I die cut the detail pieces from different colors of felt.
Assemble all the pieces together. Aren’t they cute?Use fabric glue to attach the features and details to the felt plushies. Patch the Monster comes with the teeth dies, but we got a little creative and added fake teeth to our monster, to make it look like a Fuggler.
When the glue is dry (it doesn’t take long), pin the front of the plushie to the back piece. Show your child how to do a simple stitch around the edge of the plush figure. Make sure they leave an opening for the stuffing!
Fill the plushie with fiberfill. We used a wood stick to help get the fiberfill into the tight spots, like the ears.
When the plushie is full enough, just stitch the opening closed. Have fun crafting and creating with this kids plushies tutorial!
