Materials

  • Two large squares of gray felt or fleece
  • One small square each of black, white, yellow, and red felt
  • Plex No-Sew Snuggle Pillow Templates
  • Fabric scissors (adults only)
  • Water-resistant fabric glue (Fabri-Tac or something similar)
  • Pillow stuffing (cotton or polyester batting)

Directions

  1. STEP 1: Getting Ready

    Prepare your work area by assembling all the craft items you'll need for making your pillow creation, then print out the Plex No-Sew Snuggle Pillow Templates.

  2. STEP 2: Cutting Out the Pieces

    A grown-up should cut out the template pieces and use them to cut out the pillow pieces from sheets of felt or fleece. TIPS FOR PARENTS: Either fleece or felt can be used to make these pillows, but felt works best, especially for the face details. Grown-ups should cut out the pieces, while your preschool-aged helper assembles the face details using the full-color final pillow template as a guide.

  3. STEP 3: Creating the Faces

    Help your child apply the face details to the front pillow panel. A grown-up should apply the glue to and place the face pieces on the body panel. Apply light pressure to ensure the pieces stay in place. Fabri-tac and similar products are quick drying.

  4. STEP 4: Assembling the Pillows

    Once the facial features have been glued down in place, glue together the top of Plex's head. For Plex's antennae and joy stick, cut out rectangles from black felt and roll them into sticks. Glue the end close. Place the antennae and the joy stick in place (see photo) between the front and back felt panels before gluing the edges together. Use several beads of glue between the front and back panel edges and press the edges together until the glue takes (about a minute). Once the top of the head has dried, begin stuffing with batting and continue gluing the sides together. Try not to over-stuff the pillow, as this will make it difficult to glue the sides together. Keep gluing and pressing all the edges until the pillow is sealed on all sides.

Tip: We didn't sew this pillow, but if you're handy with a sewing machine, go for it. Your pillow is sure to become a keepsake.
