This tutorial shows you how to sew your own little plush Llama toy or softie.
What you need
Fluffy fabric or towel
Needle and thread
Pencil or pen – for tracing the template
Print and cut out the patterns from the given template. Trace the body shapes on the selected fabric and cut them out nicely along the traced lines.
Place both cut out pieces (from the first step) one on the top of the other one and making sure that they are matched nicely on all sides. Prepare needle and thread and start to stitch the pieces together around the sides. You can do running stitch or flat blanket stitch.
Remember to keep a small open end for stuffing the llama plush. Keep the thread and needle attached. Insert cotton through the open end to stuff the plush. Use a pencil or pen to push the cotton inside the small parts (head- neck, legs).
Done stuffing? Stitch the open end to secure the stuffing. Cut out a rectangular piece from felt fabric.
Place the felt fabric on the back part of the llama, keeping even amount of felt (lengthwise) on both sides.
Cut out patterns for the face and ears.
Use fabric glue (or needle and thread) to attach the inner parts of the ears on the outer parts. Also attach the front part of the llama’s face with the felt cut out for the face.
Use dark colored thread or black thread to stitch the face details (eyes, nose and mouth).
Stitch the felt cut out (for the face) on its place (on the plush).
Stitch the ears on 2 sides of the head (above the face). Cut out small strands (2 inches) of yarns, fold them into half and stitch them between the ears; stitch the closed ends of the folded yarn strands.
I glued some decorative confetti on the blue felt (saddle). You can add more details if you want to.
