To make a DIY Star Plushie Pillow, start by cutting a star shape from fleece, sewing around the outline, and leaving an opening to stuff it. Add facial features with felt and fill with stuffing, then close the opening to complete your cute plushie.

Here is the step-by-step guide, where you’ll learn how to make cute star plushie pillows using fleece fabric, basic sewing skills, and a touch of creativity. These plushies make charming room decorations or thoughtful gifts for friends and loved ones.

Materials You’ll Need:

Step 1: Prepare Your Materials

Prepare Your Materials

Start by printing and cutting out the star template provided in the description. Then, fold a piece of fleece in half and place the stencil on top. Secure it in place with pearl pins, ensuring it doesn’t shift during the next steps.

Step 2: Trace and Cut

Trace and Cut

Using a pen, trace a one-inch outline around the star. This extra space will make sewing and stuffing easier. After tracing, carefully cut along the outline, keeping the two layers of fleece intact.

Step 3: Sew the Star

Sew the Star

Thread your needle with a coordinating thread color. Sew around the star’s perimeter using a basic over-and-under stitch, leaving a small opening. This opening will allow you to flip the star inside out and stuff it. Tie a knot and apply some hot glue to secure the thread, then trim the excess.

Step 4: Stuff the Star

Stuff the Star

Remove the pearl pins and the stencil. Now, turn the star right side out. Using the pillow stuffing, start by filling the star tips and then move toward the center. This ensures an even and fluffy finish.

Step 5: Add the Face

Add the Face

To make the face, trace the desired facial features onto colored felt using a sharpie. Cut out the pieces and arrange them to create the expression you want. You can mix and match to create various faces for your stars. Attach the felt pieces using a hot glue gun or fabric glue.

Step 6: Complete Your Star Plushie
