I think that these things are awesome- and easy to make! They are kind of a home-made version of Ugly Dolls that you can design however you like.
Step 1: Collect your materials...
*Newspaper, computer paper, or any kind of some-what thin paper that is easy to draw on.
*1/2 yd or less-Fabric- I used some that was very thick and soft.
*Assorted buttons- some small, some big.
*Accent fabrics (black, white)
*Scissors and a stuffing tool (I use the end of a pointy hairbrush)
*Creativity- a whole lot of it!
*Hot Glue Gun (not shown)
Step 2: Drawing your creature...
Draw onto your paper. For inspiration (if you need it), you can look up images of Ugly Dolls or other creatures.
Step 3: Cut out your creature...
Step #4: Pin your drawing to the fabric and cut 2.
Step #5: With right sides together, sew along all edges of the creature. Leave a 3-4 inch whole where you will turn it right side out.
Step #6: Turn it right side out
Step #7: Stuff the doll with fiberfill, using your stuffing tool.
Step #8: Sew the opening closed.
Step #9: Cut rig rag or fabric for the mouth and find buttons for the eyes.
Step #10: Glue the eyes and mouth on using a hot glue gun.
