    Step 1

    Supplies

    Step 2

    Cut template from scrap material or paper.

    Step 3

    Either pin or draw around the template on to chosen fabric and cut out!

    Step 4

    If you double the fabric up pre-cutting, it saves a load of time!

    Step 5

    Lay your fabric together "right side" inwards.

    Step 6

    And pin!! Tip - if you put your pin in sidewards it's easier to remove when sewing...

    Step 7

    Place fabric in machine...

    Step 8

    ...And straight stitch around all 3 sides...

    Step 9

    ...leaving a gap of about 3.5 cm...

    Step 10

    This is to allow for turning the correct way out and also to allow for stuffing!!

    Step 11

    Start by pulling the fabric back on itself through the gap...

    Step 12

    ...and "poke-out" the corners so they're as crisp as can be! Careful though, if you're too heavy handed here you will end up with a hole!

    Step 13

    Once it's all turned out....

    Step 14

    ...you're ready to stuff!!! Make sure you use the same "poking" technique as before to make sure the stuffing gets to all the corners.

    Step 15

    Step 16

    Once stuffed, sew the little gap shut...

    Step 17

    ...and place with the rest of the range...
