The weekend is always a great time to enjoy some crafts.
Via: This way come
3. A pen
4. Embroidery thread
5. A needle with an eye big enough for embroidery thread
6. Stuffing or filling (you can buy this at any craft store)
Draw the outline of your animal on a piece of felt
I chose a teddy bear shape, but you can make a whale or a lizard or Justin Timberlake. It's up to you. You'll need two sheets of felt, as you can see in the photo. You're gonna be stitching them together. Don't be afraid.
Stitch most of the animal. Just follow along the line
Add some cute Lil' eyeballs
Super easy. Just some felt circles attached with a hemming stitch. Make sure the thread only goes through the top layer of felt. If this is too daunting for you, feel free to just draw on eyes with a Sharpie like some kind of monster.
Stitch a little mouth
Continue the outline stitch from before, stopping when you have about an inch left.
Now shove stuffing in that little guy. Just cram it in there.
Use little bits of stuffing at a time. Use your finger to guide stuffing into different parts of the animal. You can also use a chopstick or whatever.
Fill the animal as much as you can, and then continue the outline stitch.
Add a little bit more stuffing if you need to before closing the stitch.
You are done
Give it to your cat. He would love it
