This robot plush Valentine tutorial is a great gift for a girl or boy! This is a sponsored post with Fairfield World.
I dyed batting from Fairfield World to make the robot. The texture is just like felt, but with dye you can make it any color you want. I like that it almost has a tie dye look to it. I used Ultra Dye from Plaid Crafts in hot water to dye the batting. The trick to making the colors vivid is to dissolve salt in the hot water! The batting is 100% cotton and for some reason the salt helps it really absorb the color well. I’m tickled with how vibrant the pink is, and it makes the perfect color for a Valentine robot!
