I found a picture of how to do this which i thought looked confusing so Ive turned it into a guide on here. I'm using some fabric as I don't actually have a glove!

2

Make sure your glove is turned inside out, you don't want to work with the nice side!

This is a diagram of the parts you need from the glove. You don't need to cut the glove into two separate hand shapes, you leave it whole as it is easier!

4

Just incase it isn't clear... For the ears and arms you literally just snip the gloves finger off!

5

Cut the shapes out and make sure you leave the edge of the glove alone when cutting out the tail and the head, it means less sewing! I forgot to do that for the tail -.-

6
Should end up with something like this! Bare in mind I didn't  use a glove so mine looks a bit different. Cut the body so you have 2 separate pieces like I have.

Fold the head in half as shown, keeping the nice side on the inside. Then sew where the dotted lines are on the paper diagram, make sure to leave the gap! I've used back stitch, not sure if its best!

Now make a little slit on each side, as I have here. This is for the ear.

Fold the ear in half and sew along the bottom of it to keep it in shape. Sewing the ear to the head is pretty tricky so be warned...

10

You need to pull the ear through the slit you made in its head and then it's pretty much trial and error sewing the ear to the inside in a way that makes it look right!

11
I made a bit of a mess! Oops.  Now try again with the next ear!

There we go, both ears done.

13
Sew a little bit on each side of the top of the body, just to hold it together. This makes it easier to sew the head and body together!

14
You need to have the head right side out and the body inside out. Try and imagine how it's meant to look when doing this part, its complicated to explain how I've set it out...

Tada! This picture should explain more how you position the head to sew it on.

16
You need to sew each side of the arm to a different piece of body, so the arm is still open, like this. I'm terrible at explaining this sorry!

Now it's starting to look more like a bear!

Now sew around all the open edges of the tail, just leaving the small end open! Now you need to stuff it with whatever you have, I'm using scraps from the fabric! Just stuff until it looks right.

19

Use a pen to shove the stuffing right to the back! Once it's stuffed, sew up the opening.

20
One stuffed tail! You attach the tail to the body the same way as the ears, make a hole and poke the end through then secure it. You can attach it where you want on the bears back, it doesn't matter.

21
Tail attached!  Now I'm not sure of the best way to finish this with stuffing and everything but I'm going to go with stuffing the arms next. If you can think of a better way, let me know!

22
Now sew where I have down each side, leave the bottom of the foot and the inside leg! Now you can turn the whole thing right side in.

23

Now stuff the head and up to the middle of its body.

24
Now pull a leg out to the side and flip it around like this so you can sew along the inside leg, don't sew all the way to the top, you need a gap in its 'crotch' to stuff the rest of the bear.

25
So it should now be completely sewn together apart from the small gap between its legs. Using this gap you stuff it's legs and the rest of its body.

Again, you can use a pen to get the stuffing into its legs if your having problems.

27
Now just sew up the hole with tiny stitches as close to the seam as possible so it doesn't stand out! And your done! Unless you want to add some decorations...

Woooo finished! Let me know how you get on if you try it! I can't decide what it looks like... A squirrel, bear, anteater, badger? It's cute anyhow ;)
