Picture of Interactive Cookie Monster Plush Toy
Make an adorable, lovable, cuddle-able Cookie Monster toy who loves cookies! His eyes light up blue when you give him a cookie, but red if you give him a carrot. Shaker motors vibrate in his stomach if Cookie Monster hasn't had something to eat for a while.

This project was created for Things That Think 2012, a class at the University of Colorado

Step 1: Cut out pattern

Using the adobe pattern files  cut out all of the parts for Cookie Monster. Make sure you use furry blue fabric for the body, head, hands and legs. Use white felt for the eyes and black felt for the inside of the mouth.

Step 2: Feet/Legs

Picture of Feet/Legs
Sew the top and the bottom of the foot together using a sewing machine. The leg looks better if you sew them inside out and then flip them fuzzy-side-out. This hides the seem on the inside of the toy.  Next, fold the leg into a cylinder and sew the edges together. Now sew the bottom of the leg into the hole in the foot and stuff it. Do not sew the top of the legs, this is where they attach to the body. Repeat these steps for the other leg.

Step 3: Arms

Sew the two halves of the arms together inside out, and then flip them fuzzy-side-out to hide the seam. Do not sew the end of the arm that connects to the body. Stuff the arm. Repeat these steps for the other arm.

Step 4: Body

Picture of Body
Marking off a 1 inch section along his side for Velcro goes (giving you access to his innards), sew the rest of the body together making sure not to sew over the section you marked off. Again, you want to sew it so together with the fuzzy sides touching and then flip it inside out to hide the seam. Now that the body is fuzzy side out, you can sew or glue the Velcro in place. Then sew the legs and arms onto the body and stuff with polyester stuffing.
