Toys and stuffed animals
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
These petite stuffed animals-a Fair Isle lamb, a cable-knit chicken, and an argyle pig-are so cuddly and simple to make, you'll want a menagerie. The toys, which range in height from 5 to 8 inches, are each assembled from a few basic felt pieces and plumped up with batting. Appendages, such as floppy ears or wings, are easily added during sewing.
This petite argyle pig is so cuddly, you'll want to produce a whole pen's worth.

And instructions. Epic instructions. They just go on and on.
to keep this simple for those who have less experience sewing - i am going to stick to making a perfectly cubicle plush monster. therefore, the pictures are guidelines to how i created the yeti plush cube monster, but the directions will be more simplistic. first - cut out 6, five inch by five inch cloth squares. (you can honestly make your monster any size you want but mine is fairly small) with the outside of the fabric together, pin the edges of two squares together. sew along the top edge of the squares.
