Step-by-Step Instructions

Flip the glove inside out and using a pen, draw the diagram. Then pin along the lines and cut, making sure the fabric does not fray. Sew along the white lines, leaving just enough room around the edges to ensure the fabric doesn't unravel and leave large holes in the seams.

Once you've sewn all the pieces together, turn them all right-side out. Stuff each piece with stuffing, except for the ears, and make sure you leave a little room at the top of each piece to allow for stitching. (Optional: before stuffing, place pipe cleaner pieces in the legs and tail to allow for a custom shape.)

Stitch the open side of the arms and tail. Then at the open side of the head piece, fold the two sides together and while holding the that in, bring the bottom to the center and then the top (like gift wrapping) . Sew the top flap down and make sure the folds are solidly in place. This should create two little pockets in the top right and left corners. fold the ears in half only at the bottom and sew the bottom half of an ear and a pocket at the back of the head together. repeat with other ear.

Sew the head, arms, and tail onto the body

To complete, use thread or buttons to create eyes at the side of the head and a little nose at the tip. Then your little friend is complete.
