Making a stuffed animal AKA plush toy or "plushie" is not as difficult or expensive as it appears. In this Instructable I will take you through the process of how I made a stuffed Ewok from Star Wars for my girlfriend.
The story behind this is that my girlfriend and I were talking about Star Wars and she brought up that she thought the Ewoks were really cute, so, half jokingly I said, "Awsome, I'll make you a stuffed one". Then she got all excited and stuff and I figured it couldn't hurt to learn to sew so I made her one.

Having never sewed before in my life, I had to learn. All I did was about 5 minutes of research and I was good to go. Here's what I read: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Sew./http://www.ehow.com/videos-on_5215_make-stuffed-animal.html These videos are kind of long, but helpful.
