Furry, Squiggy, & Fluffy
Let me just say this upfront: I do not sew. BUT. I did manage to sew these cute little guys!
Tie a double knot in your thread, (hand) sew several poof-balls together, going straight through the middle of each ball (I’m sure there’s some fancy word for doing that, but I wouldn’t know). To tie the knot at the other end, squish the poof-balls a tad, double-tie the thread, trim extra, and gently spread the poof-balls out. Because of the poofiness, you shouldn’t be able to see the knots. Add some googly eyes and antennas (hot-glue pipe cleaners).
*Note: if you’re making these for little ones, like 2 & under, you may want to reinforce the poof-balls with some glue between each one. A hardy “tug” can make heads, tails, and links fall off b/c the thread is so thin.
