And don't worry about it being perfect, it's a monster after all.

(Step 3). - Place your template on top of your fabric (making sure you have enough fabric for two) and then draw out two of your little monsters outlines on the fabric.  Cut out the two halves of your plushies body, which should now look something like this.

Two sides of your plush, one for the front and one for the back.

Next you need to flip the face side of your monster over onto the back side of your doll.  The face side needs to be on the inside of the doll whilst being sewn for a neater finish.


but once again it's a monster so you could just lay the face side on top of the back side and sew the two halves together.  It's a good idea to Use safety pins to hold the two halves of fabric together whilst sewing.

(Step 7). - Once the two halves are sewn together remove the safety pins and now where you left the gap you should be able to turn the monster doll inside out again, be patient with this pull to hard and you might tear it.

(Step 8). - Now your monsters the right way around there's little left to do but stuff it.  For this you can use many things such as the stuffing from an old pillow, feathers, rice, or anything else you fancy.  Simply push it or pour it inside the monster plush via the gap you left un-stitched under the arm.  You can use a pencil, etc. to push the stuffing into areas that might be hard to reach.  Once your monster  plush is full simply:
