Choose a felt fabric for your softie if you want a quick and easy diy project, since felt can be easy to work with and
doesn't fray. And if you do use felt for your plushie, choose a high-quality wool or a wool blend, which won't pill the
way acrylic can.

And of course, home-sewn stuffed animal doesn't have to look homemade. For instance, if you plan to use a fur
fabric for your project, try following these tips for working with fur to help give your softie a more professional look:
To cut fur fabric, place it fur side down, backing side up. And when laying your pattern pieces onto your fur fabric,
you may find it easier to use pattern weights to hold down the pattern pieces instead of pins. Then you can trace
your cutting line around the pieces with a fabric marking pen and simply cut following the lines you've drawn. And if
your fur has a nap to it (where the pile runs in one direction), make sure to lay out and cut out your pattern so that
all the pieces run in the same direction (usually with the pile running down). This way, all of the pile in your finished
item will run in the same direction. And don't double your fabric as you usually would with a non-fur fabric. Instead
cut your fur fabric in a single layer. This way, you won't be trying to cut through two bulky layers at once and you'll
avoid cutting into the fur. (See
next page for more tips on working with fur.)
