I've been trying to make a plushie bird for the last 3 days! but they don't turn out so good. And finally, in my third attempt I made one cute and fluffy plushie bird. This instructable will show how to make this cute plushie bird in few easy steps. It's really easy to make, and great for Holiday gift.

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make this plushie bird you'll need:

1) Cotton Fabric- (orange- for the beak, white or cream- for the bottom, patterned- for the rest),
2) Needle and thread,
3) Template- for the bird,
4) Paper, pencil or pen,
5) Glue (white glue or hot glue),
6) Scissor,
7) Small black beads- for the eyes.

Step 2: Template, Tracing and Cutting

I googled for cute plushie bird patterns and mixed 3 patterns for my plushie bird, I wanted the bird to be- small, fluffy and cute!

I've attached a picture of the template I drew, it isn't so hard, you can draw the template easily. I could have drew a simpler version of the template but I didn't want to cause any confusion for the beginner crafters. I've also added numbers of each pieces you'll need to cut.

Just to be clear- the bottom part of the body should be 1.5-2 cm longer than the top body part.

The template includes:
  • Tail: 2 pieces (1 plain fabric, 1 patterned fabric),
  • Wings: 4 pieces (2 plain fabrics, 2 patterned fabrics),
  • Body parts: sides- 2 pieces (both patterned fabrics), top-1 piece (patterned fabric), bottom- 1 piece (plain fabric).
  • Beak: 1 small round piece (orange fabric).
Cut the pieces out of the template and place them on the required fabric, trace around the edges and cut out fabric pieces.
Don't forget to iron the fabric to flatten it.

that is adorable. I will attempt to make it asap (which is pretty much right now)

This is very cute.Well done and explained.But I am wondering how this comes under sew warm?Is it because of the wool?Any idea?

Thanks so much! yes, it's probably because of the wool, I've seen stuffed toys and plushies in sew warm contest so just randomly entered mine :)

I've attached the template I used in step-2, but it's not printable. you can always search online for printable templates or draw one yourself.
This is ridiculously cute, and I love the fabrics you chose!
