Simple sew monster

What you need:

  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery thread or fine wool
  • Needle
  • Button
  • Stuffing ie polyfill or scrap fabric


  • Draw the shape you want your monster to be.
  • Once you have the shape you want cut out pieces of felt to the template you have drawn, allowing a little extra all the way around for the seams.
  • Then with needle and thread sew a simple stitch about 1/2cm in from the edge along the outline, leaving an inconspicuous edge unstitched to allow for stuffing.
  • Turn the monster inside out and stuff generously – make sure to get stuffing into any arms/legs/heads.
  • Once filled continue sewing until completely enclosed.
  • Sew on the button for the eye or eyes and stitch on a mouth.
