DIY Stuffed Robot Tutorial

My Inspiration comes from this unknown source.

What you’ll need:
 Scissors
Needle and thread
Ribbon for bow
2 felt hearts for the inside and outside
Eyes: 2 buttons
Eyelashes: black fabric
Pillow Stuffing
Head: (6) 2 1/2″ fabric squares
Body: (6) 3 1/2″ fabric sqaures
Hands & Feet: (6) 2″ fabric squares
Legs & Arms (4) 3 x 6 1/2″ fabric squares
 Begin by sewing the squares together to form a square.
My sewing maching wouldn’t work so I had to sew by hand.
 PINit 
Stuffed the squares with pillow stuffing.
Add the felt square inside
To form the Legs & Arms fold and sew the 3 x 6 1/2 fabric square.
It takes practice; so try to sew in between the whole fabric to make it ruffled.
(Hope I explained my self right.. )
Simply sew the arm it to the robot’s body and hand
Attach bow and eyes

Eyelashes: Cut tiny thin triangles of black fabric and use glue gun to attached them in back of the eye buttons.

Optional: You can sew the trim again so It can give it a more square look to the whole stuffed robot.
And VIOLA! It takes time but super fun to make!
It was my homemade valentine’s gift for my Little Aries.
She was more than happy with her DIY Stuffed Robot!
Isn’t super cute?! It would of looked much better using a sewing machine but next time will be perfect.
Thanks for stopping by,
Angie

  • Karen - How do you attach the head to the body?ReplyCancel

  • Brittany - How did you attach the head to the body? It seems like it would be difficult to stitch it on towards the middle so it doesn’t look like a blob.ReplyCancel

    • Angie - Hi Britanny!
      You can sew in the head to the body before filling them. Mine turned out ok :)ReplyCancel

  • cara - I saw this on pinterest, and I *love* it! I think the hand-sewing absolutely adds that perfect amount of imperfection for charm :)!ReplyCancel

  • Erin - The only thing i’m not understanding is the arms (sorry!) how are you making them slinky like that? are you lining up the edges and sewing it and then turning it inside out to hide the seam? or are you overlapping and sewing from the outside?ReplyCancel

  • Tina - I have had this cute robot on a pinterest board for a while. I think I might try making one out of felt and see how it looks.

    Thanks for the tutorial!ReplyCancel

  • Kalli - Im also slightly confused about the arms. Are you sewing through all three layers?( the folded over and the back) or just through two that you are over-lapping?ReplyCancel

  • Lori - Had to share my latest personal challenge…just something that got stuck in my head and I had to see it come to life. Not perfect, but that is kind of the point :)

  • Beelyana - It’s supercute!!! I’m planing to make one for my girl, so i was wondering, instead of cutting six pieces for the head, can i cut one shape like the pattern for paper box, ? It seems lot easier and a bit less sewing…
    btw, it looks cuter handsawn than on a sewing machine.ReplyCancel

  • yoliie - My robot did not come out square it looks like a ballReplyCancel
