Editorial Guidelines Updated on September 20, 2018 Share Tweet Pin Email Kids love drawing and stuffed animals, so why not combine the two? With just a little artistic flair, kids can draw characters straight from their imaginations and then make them into delightful stuffed animals, aliens, or creatures from the deep. What You'll Need Materials Plain fabric Markers of crayons Colored felt or fabric Batting Sewing kit Instructions Sketch a character on a piece of plain fabric, such as muslin, with fabric markers or crayons (follow package directions). Next, pin the drawing on a piece of colored felt or fabric (this will be the animal's back). Cut around the outline through both layers, leaving a border. Sew around edges (to hang, sew over ends of a folded length of yarn); leave an opening. Stuff with batting, and sew opening closed.
