What you need:

· Stretch fabric

· Satin fabric
· Sewing machine
· Needle & thread

· Fiber fill

· Hot glue

· Scissors

· Thin ribbon
· Rhinestones
· Rings ;)


1. Cut the fabric into two 10-inch (25.4cm) by 10-inch squares.

2. Sew all the way around with a 1/2-inch (1.27cm) seam allowance and leave at least 1 inch (2.5cm) for the gap to invert the piece.

3. Invert the square, then fill with fiber fill until plump. Fluff the filling up to make it even, then hand-stitch the gap using the blind stitch.

4. Cut two strips of satin fabric. A longer piece: 22 inches (55.88cm) by 6.5 inches (16.51cm), and a shorter piece: 5 inches (12.7cm) by 7 inches (17.78cm).

5. Leaving a 1/2” (1.27cm) seam allowance, fold the longer piece in half lengthwise and sew down the open end. Invert. Repeat for the shorter piece.

6. Tie the longer piece around the middle of the pillow. Bunch up the ends and sew together.

7. Wrap the shorter piece around the middle. Fold the remaining seam inwards and sew onto the longer piece.

8. "Weave" the needle through the top corners of the pillow to make the ‘ears.’ Pull the string to wrinkle the corner, then tie and cut.

9. Hot glue rhinestones on the pillow for the bear’s eyes and nose.

10. Sew a thin ribbon on the underside of the bear’s bow. Tie the rings onto the ribbon.
