Directions for making a Feathered Nest Studio Stuffy
Lucky you, you have a Stuffy kit! (Don’t have one but want one? Go to featheredneststudio.etsy.com to purchase.) Here are the step-by-step illustrated directions for making your Stuffy. Wow Pow Pig is shown below, but the directions are the same for any of the Stuffies.
Here is what your Stuffy looks like when you take him/her out of the packaging:
Now you need to cut all the pieces out on the dashed cut lines (accessory may have a solid line):
Then you put the right sides (the fronts) facing each other and pin them together:
Stitch closed, EXCEPT (this is very important) leave an opening so you can turn the Stuffy right side out and stuff. Suggestion: Leave the opening on a straight area because it is much easier to sew closed. I left my opening on an ear… aye, what a pain. An opening on a leg or arm would have been much better. Here is the Stuffy stitched up, with opening:
Next, turn your Stuffy and accessory right side out completely and then begin stuffing each. I like to use a chopstick to help push the stuffing in to all those hard to reach corners:
Here I am stuffing in that last little bit:
Now, just stitch the opening closed:
Done! Time to play:
visit FeatheredNestStudio.etsy.com to purchase Stuffy kits: “Wow Pow Pig!” with his eco-friendly tote bag filled with fresh fruit, “Holy Moly Monkey Man!” and his banana, and “Fiery Foxie Fox!” and his picnic basket are currently available.
*Accessory is put together the same way, but there is no solid line for stitching on. Just give yourself a little room before the design starts and stitch around. Don’t forget to leave an opening to turn rightside out and stuff!
