How to Guide:
Make your template
I used an old cereal box to get the size I wanted, but any piece of cardboard or paper will work!
Cut out your template
Use your template
Cut out your animal
Place these cutouts on your animal and made adjustments as needed to get the right size, shape, facial expression.
Paper to fabric
Sew on your features
Eyes and nose
If the pillow is for a baby, be sure to tack down the edges and not just glue. When the glue wears, it could be a chocking hazard.
Front to back
When stuffing, fill the ears and shape the head first so that they are good and full. Try to “over stuff” a little, it will flatten in time so you want it good and stuffed to start!
Close it up
Place in a cozy corner for snuggling!
