DIY: Sammy Snake

2013 is the year of the snake. So here comes an easy DIY project for a big snake plushie. You need a knitted scarf and a rectangular piece of fabric in the same size for the inner cushion. Just fold the scarf double and close the seam on the long side. I have turned the sides of the scarf into half circles and closed the seams like that. If you want to wash the outer shell separately it makes sense to have a zipper in the long seam. Follow the same steps for the inner cushion but leave a small part of the long seam open for the filling. You can use either soft cushion filling (buy a few cheap cushions from IKEA) or beanbag pearls. Decorate the outer shell with big buttons for the eyes.
