Program Description

Event Details

Try out a new creative project at home with the ideaLAB. In this online session you will learn to sew a small stuffed creature.

This beginner sewing project will teach you basic hand stitching techniques while customizing a plushie that can be used as a keepsake, decoration, or gift. You can use supplies provided in an ideaLAB Take & Make Kit or your own supplies from home.

To get an ideaLAB Take & Make Kit: stop by Hadley, Hampden, Montbello, Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales, or Sam Gary Branches and request a kit starting February 27. Supplies are limited, first come first served.

Step-by-step instructions and a video tutorial for the project are available at https://bit.ly/DPLplushie if you can't attend the live program or want to review the project at another time.

To follow along with the project you will need:

  • Printed pattern (2 pages) - download link. We recommend printing pattern and cutting out felt pattern pieces prior to event.
  • Felt or fabric - a fabric that doesn't fray when cut works best
  • Pencil, pen, or chalk - to trace pattern on your fabric.
  • Scissors
  • Sewing or embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Stuffing, scrap fabric, or cut up plastic bags - to stuff the project with.
  • Optional decorating supplies such as buttons, googly eyes, scrap fabric, 
  • Optional hot glue gun or craft glue for attaching decorations.

This is a casual learning environment, and makers of all skill levels are welcome.
