How to Make a Stuffed Monster Cat

DIY Stuffed Monsters
Joanne’s Fabric was having a sale on fleece blankets, so I decided to pick up a few and craft! I really did not know what I wanted to make, but I knew I wanted it to be fun and stuffed animal like. I Started by deciding on the main shape. I went with rectangle. In order to make it more interesting, I sewed the fabric together in several areas to create a unique silhouette.

Mark was my crafting company.

Then I used the base of my creature to create a pattern for the front and back pieces.

I got out some crafting felt and played around with shapes until I came up with the face and ears.

I used scraps of fleece to create the tail and floppy legs. Making sure to finish all the edges and turn things inside out once sewn.

Then I stuffed the legs and sewed them on. Finally, I stuffed up my Monster Cat (I decided it looked like a cheshire cat bus), and sewed it shut.

Look, you can use its tail as a handle! Mark came up with that idea.

This all took about 2-3 hours, including prep and design time. I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I had a lot of fun making it. I may make some kittens to go with it.
