Step 3: You’ll have to copy your template to your fabric after you’ve finished it. Place your material on top of the template. With either a dark pen or a piece of chalk, form a circle around the online. Repeat on both sides of your stuffed animal. Following the line you created, cut your fabric.

Step 4: To ensure that the two layers of fabric stay aligned before stitching your animal, use regular sewing pins to put them together. Your fabric should be pinned from the inside out. Pin your animal’s border horizontally with the pins. All of your pins should be about 1/2 inch away.

Step 5: Then, take the fabric and sew all the sides leaving around 1 and a half inches to fill in the creature. Pull all normal pins from your creature’s edges once you’ve finished sewing.

Step 6: Pull the cloth through the opening you left unstitched and flip it inside out using the opening you left unstitched. Pulling all of the material through your entire body may take some time. The rough stitches should be covered when you flip it inside out, revealing the excellent side of your material.
