DIY: Thrift fabric characters
The thrift store is quite the hotspot for finding fabric. I’ve found awesome upholstery fabric and vintage pieces in my thrifting adventures that is on budget. I’ve also repurposed clothing that is dated or worn into fabulous DIYs. You can easily turn thrift fabric into super sweet creatures.
- thrift store fabric or old clothing
- needle and thread
- random buttons
- paper and pen
- felt (optional)
- sewing machine (optional)
I am not a sewer. I’m more of a hack when it comes to using my trusty 1950s Singer. For this DIY you can use a sewing machine or just hand sew your creature. First step in making a stuffie is to create your pattern. I drew out my cat then cut out the pattern. It doesn’t need to be perfect since this is a handmade stuffie.
