Koala Plushie

List of Supplies:

  1. Felt fabrics
  2. Pencil or fabric marker pen
  3. Scissors
  4. Needle and thread
  5. Cotton or scrap felt

 

 

Instructions:

 

Step 1

Prepare the patterns by printing and cutting them out from the koala bear template. Select felt fabrics for the koala plushie and trace the patterns on the selected felts. Cut out the traced felts using scissors.

 

 

Step 2

Place the individual hand cutouts on the hand patterns of the main body. Stitch them all around the open sides. Stitch the inner ear cutouts on the ear patterns of the main body. Stitch the inner belly pattern on the middle of the main belly pattern. Now stitch the nose and eyes on the big round cutout (the head). The template does not include eye cut outs. You can simply cut out 2 same sized round shapes from black or any coloured felt you like.

 

Step 3

You can use cotton or scrap felt for stuffing the plushie. A great way to use all those scrap felt is to cut them into small pieces and use them for plushie stuffing.

 

 

Step 4

Stuff the 2 hands of the koala through the open ends.

 

 

Step 5

After the hands are stuffed, place the belly pattern on the belly part of the main body cutout. Stitch around the open sides, keeping the top side intact and stitching the sides overlapped with the hands.

Step 6

Once the belly parts are stitched, stuff it with the scrap felt through the open end.

 

 

Step 7

Finally, place the head cut out over the head part of the main body. Stitch around the open sides and also stitch the sides overlapped with the top side of the belly. Before stitching the overlapped side, make sure to stuff the head through that end.

 

 

Stitch to close the open end and secure the stuffing.  Tie a knot or two and then cut off extra thread.
