Body Assembly

Before sewing, make any placement adjustments until you’re happy with where everything is placed.

First, sew on the arms, making the sure arm doesn’t have too much stuffing at the very top. This will make it easier to sew on.

Now sew on the ears. When sewing them on, make sure the ears point to the side.

Next sew on the head spring onto head.

Sew head onto body.

Sew on belly patch.

Face Assembly:

In tan: Start off with sewing on a nose in the center of the face, between the two eyes. About 3 stitches will be between the needle. Start by inserting the needle and sewing side to side, working your way down to make the nose. A total of 3 pieces off string should make the nose, going through the same original 2 stitches. Once you have finished making the nose, sew a line directly underneath the nose down.

Mouth:

Optional. For a more realistic looking teletubbie, put on a mouth. In tan: Sew a strand of yarn in the middle of the line we created. Do this twice to get a little bit bigger of a lip. I did this and liked it better than one sewn lip.

In black: Hold the two lips back and sew underneath them with one strand of black yarn.

Now we have finished the mouth. Sew any remaining yarn inside the teletubbie.

Now you’re finished!

If you finished a teletubbie, I would be SO HAPPY if you uploaded your finished project here!
