Soon you can start researching about how to go about sourcing the velvety kind of materials that are used for making stuffed toys and the materials needed for stuffing them. While we are on the subject of stuffed toys, we would also like to try a simple way of making cute toys that look as if they are stuffed but do not actually need to be stuffed at all.
Make fluffy balls by winding wool around your fingers while ensuring that the length of the bundle is not too long. Once you have finished winding to the extent that your fingers are covered, tie a bit of wool in the middle of the bundle. Once the binding is secure, cut the loop that is formed by the wool on both the ends. This will form a cute ball once you have managed to trim the edges to make it look like a cute fluffy ball. All you need to do is make balls of various sizes for the main body, a smaller one for the head, two small ones for the ears, two for the hands and two to form the leg portions.
Once you have attached all the bits, you can simply sew on eyes using buttons or some such things. This teddy bear can be made to look more realistic by adding a waistcoat or something like that to the body of the teddy bear.
Once you have the concept down, it is easy enough to form these cute woolen balls and make many stuffed toys out of this concept. You can even attach these cute little balls to pillows and cushions around the home to convert them into stuffed toy look alikes.
