Hello again! This is a guide on how to make a plush power star from Mario. I've added a little pocket at the back but you don't have to. The main star is made of polar fleece (gold/bright yellow) but the eyes are felt (black and white). That's basically all you need apart from a pair of scissors, a sewing machine, with thread and a method of drawing on fabric (don't use a marker as it will show through).
Also, this is an entry for the game life2 challenge, so if you liked it, I'd really appreciate a vote! :D (Top right corner)
Step 1: Template, Sketch On, Cut Out.
I basically just got a picture of a power star from the web and made it as big as possible on an A4 word document, but I will include a template for those who want it precise. I cut out the template and drew around it on the fleece with sewing chalk/pencil ( I had to cut two centimeters extra so that when completed, it would fit). I also sketched a pocket but as I don't have a template for that, you can make it as big as you like. Cut all that out.
Step 2: A Bit More Cutting, and Some Sewing Then You're Done!
Cut out the eyes from black felt. I measured them from the template then cut out black felt that size and shape. I did the same with the white felt pupils. Sew the pocket on. I hemmed mine, then pinned and sewed it in to place. Flip the two sides of your star so they face each other (facing inward). Sew every side EXCEPT âthe space between the bottom two points (it's clearer in the pic). Then stuff your star so that he is nice and fat! I used some fiber-filler I had in the cupboard, used for making plushes. Make sure that it is firmly stuffed or you will have a flimsy star :( . The pin the un-sewed sides with a little bit folded in, so it is neat. Sew that neatly up (as best you can). Unless I have forgotten something, which I probably have, you are FINISHED! I made a small egg from felt and slid that into the pocket.
