30 Minute Stuffed Animal - a Refashion

Who wants to make the easiest stuffed animal ever?  I love quick projects and this refashion to make a stuffed animal is so easy, you may want to make more than one. Plus, keep reading to find out how you can use them to help a good cause! 

Start this project with a tee shirt that has an animal on it.  

Using a washable pen, mark 3/8" around the animal. This will be your seam allowance.

Along the marked seam allowance, pin around the inside of your markings and cut out the animal.

Now re-pin your animal together with the right side of the image on the inside. 

Sew a 3/8" seam all the way around the animal, leaving at least a 1 1/2" opening along the bottom or the side of the animal.  Clip curves and turn right side out. 

Stuff your animal with fiber fill.  Hand sew the opening closed. That's it!

30 minutes later, you'll have a darling stuffed animal. I told you this refashion was so easy!  

Please think about making a few of these or other softies and sending them to Sew Mama Sew by April 30, 2015.
