Step 1: Step 1 (Fabric)

You need to get some fabric, preferably something soft
the easyest way to get this is to cut apart old t-shirts
the amount of fabric you need will be detirmined by the size of your plushie
also you will need some stuffing

Step 3: Design

Now you need a design for your plushie
I got mine off the Doukutsu Tribute site Doukutsu Tribute site

Step 4: Transfer and cut

Transfer your design to the fabric (i.e. trace it, etc.). Make sure you have the corect number of peces for your design (on mine: front, back, and two ears). then use the rotery cutter and scissors to cut your design out (make sure you leave a 1/4-5/8 inch seam alowance)

Step 6: Sew

This step is pritty simple, you just sew along the outline
(it might help to go to this sewing site-it will show you the basic stiches) be sure to leave a small hole for stuffing

Step 7: Stuffing

pack the stuffing into the hole you left (do not overfill) till it is full but still soft

Step 8: Finishing

sew up the hole you put the stuffing in (try using a blind stitch) put anything else on now (e.g. eyes, ears, glue on noses, etc) *notice I missed and you can see the black thread on the left ear, dang*

Step 9: Enjoy your plushie!

and please note that any small objects are not for small chilrdren or the mentaly impared

With a bit of tweaking this should do the trick:

I think I've been playing too much cave story because I recognized that from the thumbnail. It's pretty awesome looking.
is that balrog guy supposed to be a dog or a block??

It's kind of a block-robot thing, it trys to kill the main character several times
oh because the black part looks like a nose and the bottom seam looks like a mouth.

This is where I think you went wrong. I would have used a fabric that doesn't stretch just to make it easier to sew. I like to go to thrift stores and buy old hawaiian shirts and whatnot to reuse the fabric. I still think your project is cute, though, and the imperfections work for it.

This is sooooo cool! Using your clear instructions, look at the creation of my friend George and I. It is a super mega awesome fishy that sings the Peppridge Farm's goldfish song.

Jordan is completely right; the stitching done on the right side of the fabric creates a product with inferior apeal. This and the 1/8th seam technique should be explained...Also, on a project this simple you may not want to assume that those attempting it will know what a blind stitch is. cute design though, keep working to refine your tecniques, and remeber: if a stitch is going to apear messy, USE A THREAD COLOR THAT BLENDS WITH THE FABRIC! a contrasting thread color is less disreable for something you wish to apear life-like, but if it is used then it is best to take extreme caution with your stitches.

i like to make cubes and things, it's fun. if anyone can tell me how to make a sphere, tell me plz

you should sew it inside out then flip it right side out, that way you won't see the stitches. Cute though. I remember doing this with scrap fabric whenever my mother would make curtains and other things when I was just a wee child. lol
wow thats gheto...
i would like to be the first to say....This is the sickest thing i have ever seen i can't beleave you would stuff an innocent plushy like this!!!!!! J/K :P (leftovers from another instructable involving stuffing) no i like it gives me somthing to do with all my old work shirts *starts looking for his old McDonalds shirt*
