Is this lucky little birthday boy/Minecraft freak holding the world's first Wither Plushie? Although highly improbable, it's possible... Want to know what else is possible? The ability to create one of your very own. In this Instructable I will help you craft a Wither for youself, a friend, or anyone else who was lucky enough to have met your acquaintance.

Below are the basic tools that you will need
Sewing machine
Sewing needles
Seam ripper
Ruler or Yard stick or t-square
Right angle ruler (optional)
Push pins
Masking tape
Clear tape

Below are the materials that I used to create my Wither. You may substitute these materials for others but keep in mind that the fabric will reflect the overall quality of the final product.

I purchased all of my materials from Joann's. If you're doing the same then check their website for coupons before you go or download their app to get the coupons. Another thing to consider is if you have a competing store nearby you may be able to price match items and coupons.

Materials (click for direct link to product on Joann)
Fabric - 1 Yard of Costume Suede Caviar Solid Alova
Ribbon - 1 Yard of 1 & 1/2" Wide ribbon ( Not listed on Joann website but pictured for reference) 
Thread - 100M Thread (color "Flint")
Thread - 250 Yards (color "black")
Stuffing- FiberFill Stuffing 32oz 
Marker - Sharpie Metallic Silver pack of 2 

Fabric - $8.99 used 40% off coupon $5.39
Ribbon - $1.49
Thread - $1.80
Thread - $2.99
Stuffing- $8.99 on sale for $5.99
Marker - $4.99 price matched at Michael's with 40% off Joann coupon $2.99

Total 20.65 + 7% State Tax
Grand Total $22.09 (YMMV)

If your store doesn't have the Caviar Solid Alova here are two other fabrics that are similar. I was considering both of these fabrics but ultimately chose the Caviar Alova.

Sew Classic Suedecloth-Caviar Solid Microsuede 01626233

Costume Suedecloth -Black Fringe Alova 7845662 (its has a fringed end pictured online but in store it didn't, possible mistake on my part)

I now really want to make this. Is there any chance you can make a creeper soo?
MasamuneX (author)  arsha721282 years ago
I'd love to see your plushie when your done. <(^_^)> ...... Also, I've made a Creeper but I feel the Instructable linked below has already covered the process well enough not to merit making another.

The only thing I would have done differently is to have used a different material.
Below is a link to the material I used for my Creeper. Its really not that expensive and gets even cheaper when you use a coupon.

By the way you can see pictures of the Creeper in my Slime Instructable. Step 9 has some good ones lol.

How many wither skeleton plushie did you have to kill to make that?
MasamuneX (author)  MonkiMan2 years ago
I guess I should have added the disclaimer. No Wither skeletons were harmed in the making of this Instructable. :)
